Video has emerged of a Scotland supporter staggering straight into a motorbike as football fans continue to bring drunken chaos to London’s streets.

Thursday’s low-speed crash came as Scots poured into the English capital ahead of Friday night’s derby at Wembley in Euro 2020.

The Tartan Army have been partying in the city’s streets ahead of the 8pm clash and brought plenty of drunken antics.

The motorcyclist was clearly unimpressed by the man staggering across a busy road and directly into oncoming traffic, but it is unclear if he was hurt.

Kenzie Harvey said his unnamed friend was ‘aw gid biys’ following the crash, after he shared footage of it on Twitter. The video has since racked up more than 700,000 views.

The cameraman laughs throughout the video, while beeping horns can also be heard attempting to warn the drunk that a vehicle is about to slam into him.

Both he and the biker collapse in a heap on the floor, before the motorcyclist begins berating the man, wearing a Scotland shirt, who then attempts to jog away, seemingly unhurt.

Rowdy fans have been filmed chanting about midfielder John McGinn in their droves at Hyde Park, where a large group partied with flags and flares.

One naked man had to be led away by police.

In Leicester Square, other supporters waved flags and sang songs, while some turned a William Shakespeare fountain into a bubble bath and jumped in.

They also took part in a light-hearted conga.

Ticketless fans had been urged not to travel to England because of fears around spreading coronavirus.

A spokesman for Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said: ‘It is not possible to hold a fan zone for Scottish fans in London due to the Covid restriction.

‘Fans should only travel to the capital if they have a ticket or a safe place to watch the match.’

There have been pleas for a big screen to be put up in Hyde Park, amid fears that not all fans will be able to find pubs to watch the game and there being no fan zone after Trafalgar Square’s big screen was reserved for local key workers.

On Thursday the Metropolitan Police issued a 48 hour dispersal order in central London, giving officers more powers to remove drunken troublemakers.

Meanwhile, England and Scotland fans are predicted to buy 3.4 million pints during tonight’s game.

The British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA) estimates that 14.8 million pints will be sold across England and Scotland on match day, with over 3 million sales during the game itself.

But the trade association warned that due to Covid-19 restrictions, including social distancing, rule of six and no standing, that beer sales will be reduced by almost 850,000 pints.
