Chelsea fans in clash with police

Spanish police wielding batons clashed with Chelsea fans during the English side's European Cup Winners' Cup semi-final defeat in Spain last night.

A section of around 300 supporters who were housed in an area reserved for the 1,800-strong official party began ripping up seats and hurling them at Spanish police when their side went 3-0 down after a goal by Real Zaragoza's Esnaider 57 minutes into the first leg tie.

Riot squads made several charges to pen back the supporters before managing to restore order.
