Real Madrid win 15th European Cup after beating Dortmund in final – with arrests made over ‘attempts to breach security’ | World News

More than 50 people have been arrested at Wembley after a pitch invasion and attempts to breach security at the Champions League final, the Metropolitan Police has said.

Wembley Stadium confirmed arrests were made after the game was halted inside the opening minute as three separate pitch invaders evaded security.

There were also reports of fans trying to enter the game without tickets.

T/Commander Louise Puddefoot: “We are confident that the overwhelming majority of attempts to unlawfully gain access to Wembley this evening were unsuccessful thanks to the efforts of officers, stewards and other stadium staff.

“Officers have made 53 arrests at Wembley – five for pitch invasion and the majority of others for attempts to breach security.

“There is a robust policing operation in place to support the Wembley security plan and officers have worked closely with stewards and stadium staff to maintain security throughout.

“Videos shared online showing groups running into entrances do not necessarily represent successful attempts to enter the stadium. There are typically multiple further levels of security beyond an initial entrance.

“Officers remain in the area outside the stadium and will deal decisively with any criminality.”

Real Madrid beat Borussia Dortmund 2-0 on Saturday thanks to late goals from Dani Carvajal and Vinicius Jr.
