Ticketless fans who stormed Wembley before the Euro 2020 final could have caused deaths of other supporters, says a review into the disorder.

England’s first major final appearance in 55 years was overshadowed by supporters storming barriers to gain access to the stadium ahead of England’s clash with Italy, following excessive drinking an drug-taking ahead of kick-off.
