Tottenham Hotspur fans attacked by dozens of ‘neo-Nazi thugs’ at Lyon bar

The Spurs supporters were targeted in the apparently premeditated attack as they gathered in the Smoking Dog, in Vieux.Hooligans hurled missiles including iron stools and even a flare at the bar at about 10pm last night as some 150 British supporters cowered inside.

Police did not arrive for 20 minutes and three Spurs fans were taken to hospital with what were believed to be minor injuries.

Metro chief reporter Aidan Radnedge, who was travelling with Spurs supporters, said there had been a good atmosphere in the English-style pub ahead of the violence with fans singing and drinking together.
