Two men have received fines and conditional discharges after they smashed up their local pub in Dartford following England's penalty loss defeat to Italy in the Euro 2020.

Most of the country was bitterly disappointed after a likeable England squad were beaten at the final hurdle this summer, but not many dealt with their disappointment as badly as these two men.

Kent Police Dartford said two people were arrested in Dartford town centre on July 11 after they were accused of "smashing up their local pub."

They were both charged with criminal damage and recently appeared in court.

Both men pleaded guilty to the charge, and were given conditional discharges.

The pair were also given a total combined £1,214 worth of fines and costs to pay.

Kent Police Dartford tweeted out in June saying that "smashing up your local pub because England lost on penalties is not advisable."

England's men's football team excelled at the Euro 2020, held a year later than planned due to the pandemic, defeating Germany, Ukraine and Denmark in extra time to reach their first ever Euros final.

But despite a goal from Luke Shaw, England was agonisingly edged out by stylish Italy after a penalty shootout.
