AN increased police presence will put in place in a town for the next England game after yobs were seen jumping on cars and damaging a bus.

Following England's 6-1 victory over Panama in their World Cup game on Sunday police were called to a large crowd causing trouble outside The Commercial Hotel in Haslingden.

Yobs were spotted jumping on cars, damaging a bus and throwing bottles and throwing flares in the street.

Officers said they received reports of public order offences and were investigating the incident.

PCSO Chris Hamer hit out at the behaviour of people outside the pub following the World Cup game.

Posting on Twitter, he said: "If your definition of supporting England is damaging property, threatening your own community and turning your town centre into a human safari park drive through experience, then your country/community doesn't need your 'support'."

He also said there was reports of another bus coming under attack, stating doors were forced open with windows smashed and beer thrown inside, forcing commuters to find another way home after bus being taken off road.

The Lancashire Telegraph understands officers have been reviewing CCTV and video footage to try and identify offenders.

It is unclear at this stage if any arrests have been made.

Plans are now being drawn up for Thursday to prevent the same scenes happening again for the England vs Belgium game.

PCSO Hamer said: "Local residents should see an increase in police presence from the neighbourhood team in Haslingden for the game."

Videos have been shared across social media of scenes from Sunday afternoon showing people jumping on top of passing cars and pulling a window from near the front of a bus.

More than 50 people were spotted in the street, many wearing England shirts and flags, and they were seen blocking traffic as cars tried to drive down Manchester Road.

Cllr Ann Kenyon, who represents the area on Rossendale Council, said: "Drinks were being thrown about, there was smashed glass all over the place after, it's dangerous.

"Behaviour like this is not acceptable and has no place in the town."

Staff at Rosso buses, who had one of its vehicles damaged in the incident, said the actions of yobs 'could potentially have endangered the people on the bus including the driver, and themselves'.
