A football fan has been arrested after falling out of a hotel room window in London during last night's match.

The 27-year-old, believed to be a Scotland supporter, suffered injuries to his hands after reportedly falling from the sixth floor.

Two officers were hurt in the incident and a taser was used, the Met Police said in a statement.

Officers were called after a man was allegedly throwing items from a window.

Police and paramedics from the London ambulance service were called to the Corus Hotel in Lancaster Gate, close to Hyde Park, last night.

The incident unfolded during the 0-0 stalemate between England and Scotland at Wembley in the European Championships.

A cordon was set up around the hotel, where rooms cost around £180 a night.

The man, who was arrested on suspicion of affray, had reportedly travelled from Scotland – but this has not been confirmed.

In a statement the Metropolitan Police said: "Police were called at around 21:40hrs on Friday, 18 June, to a male throwing items from the window of a hotel in Lancaster Gate, W2.

"It was also reported that the man had injuries to his hands.

"Officers attended the location and detained a 27-year-old man after he fell from a window. He was arrested on suspicion of affray.

"The man has been taken to hospital for treatment. His condition is not life-threatening."

A spokesman said that a taser had been used, and two officers had been injured.
