'Doesn't chime!' Boris rages as Macron allies blame Britons for violent chaos in Paris


No10 defended Liverpool fans after members of Emmanuel Macron’s cabinet blamed the football supporters for riot police deploying tear gas outside the Stade de France.

The Prime Minister today threw his weight behind an inquiry into how police reacted as his spokesman said first-hand accounts from the night “don’t chime” with the claims being made by the French government.

Mr Macron’s sports minister Amelie Oudea-Castera claimed a “mass gathering” of supporters with “fake tickets” for the match between Liverpool and Real Madrid had forced police to intervene.

“What happened, first of all, was this mass gathering of the British supporters of the Liverpool club, without tickets, or with fake tickets,” she told French radio RTL on Monday.

Meanwhile, UEFA, the European football governing body, initially stated the late arrival of Liverpool fans was responsible for a delay in the match’s kick off.
