Following Violence And Unrest At Wembley Ahead Of The Euro 2020 Final The Fa Has Launched An Independent Investigation Into Security Failures

Following the violence and disturbance at the Euro 2020 Final, the FA has commissioned an independent assessment into security breaches at Wembley.
Thousands of ticketless fans broke through barriers and invaded the stadium, prompting the appointment of Baroness Casey of Blackstock to lead the investigation into the “disgraceful events.”
The crowd disturbance at the Euro 2020 Final between England and Italy on July 11 threatens to torpedo a joint British and Irish candidacy to host the World Cup in 2030.
Authorities have demanded an independent investigation into the mayhem, and the FA has alerted the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) that they want “to guarantee that lessons are learned and such heinous spectacles are never repeated.”
“We are committed to fully assess what transpired outside and subsequently inside Wembley Stadium at the UEFA Euro 2020 Final on July 11,” the FA said in a statement.
“An independent review led by Baroness Casey of Blackstock has been commissioned to report on the facts and circumstances involved,” we told the DCMS over the weekend.
It will consult with all parties involved, as well as external specialists.
“A major focus of the findings will be to guarantee that lessons are learnt and that such heinous acts are never repeated.”
