Despite an agonising semi-final World Cup exit in extra time, police say last night went as peaceful as they could have hoped for.

Croatia beat England 2-1 on Wednesday night but the majority of fans left pubs and parks "with their heads held high and without issue".

This wasn't the case on Saturday (July 7) when England overcame Sweden which led to an outbreak of alcohol-fuelled offending.

The National Police Chief's Council said there were 387 football related offences over the weekend, mostly because of too much booze.

A "small number of incidents and arrests" were made last night but the Met Police thanked fans for making their life easier.

Steve Cooper, who led the police operation, said: "We have made two arrests for domestic abuse-related offences, but the levels of criminal damage, disorder and antisocial behaviour that we saw on the weekend have not been repeated.

"People have been really cooperative and patient while we closed a number of roads in the city centre to move on the crowds of people leaving Nottingham Castle and have made their way under instruction of uniformed colleagues."
