Two men have been arrested following a large disturbance in Essex – soon after England’s World Cup win against Panama on Sunday.

Police were called just after 4pm to reports of a fight breaking out between a large group of people outside Drapers Hotel, in High Street, Earls Colne.

Officers attended and dispersed the crowd as a man was treated by paramedics for a head injury and taken to hospital. His injury was not life-threatening.

Two men, aged 58 and 33, were arrested on suspicion of assault.

Detective Sergeant Becky Young from Braintree CID said: “This was an unacceptable incident leaving one person injured.
