MARSEILLES (Sputnik) — French police on Saturday used tear gas for a third day in a row against English football fans involved in clashes near the city's Old Port, a R-Sport correspondent reported.

Local police used gas and detained several fans, after they started throwing bottles and chairs at law enforcement officers.

​The incident took place ahead of the first match of England's national team, which is due to play with Russia's team at Stade Velodrome on 8 p.m. local time (19:00 GMT).

Scuffles involving England's fans had already took place outside an English pub in Marseilles’ Old Port on Thursday and Friday, ahead of England’s Euro 2016 games.
