A CROWD of football hooligans got their comeuppance when they crashed to the ground as an escalator broke on the metro.
In a video that has gone viral they can be seen falling over one another as they tumble down stairs.The rowdy fans piled onto the escalator after a derby match between Djurgarden and AIK in Stockholm on Thursday. But, they had climbed onto an escalator that normally goes up, according to SVT.
Normally, the break would stop any movement but it was too heavy and the stairs started moving at several times their normal speed. It had been thought the police sped up the stairs deliberately to disperse the football fans. But Transport Agency staff confirmed it is not possible to increase the speed of an escalator.
They have decided to turn off and lock all escalators during future football matches.
