Police yesterday arrested two suspected football hooligans as part of a continuing operation designed to prevent violence at Euro 96. The arrests followed the release by police on Tuesday of photographs depicting six suspects wanted in connection with violence at an Arsenal-Spurs game in April.

The men arrested yesterday were two of those pictured. They were detained in Upminster, east London, and in Chichester, West Sussex, and taken to Holloway police station in north London for questioning.

Another of the six men surrendered himself earlier in the week. The pictures were released as police arrested six people in dawn raids in Essex and north London.
