Dr Geoff Pearson

Geoff spoke to The Times on June 9 about policing football hooliganism, as England fans departed for Marseille for Euro 2016, classing "England-Russia as the highest risk possible" because of the two nations involved, the venue and the hardline methods of French police. "They only know one way of policing, and we have seen it not just with football fans but marches, protests, riots," he said. "They arrive late after disorder and go in with overwhelming force."

He then appeared on the Today Program, BBC Radio four, as well as BBC Breakfast, BBC News Channel and BBC Radio Five and the Daily Telegraph following the clashes between Russian and English fans in France.
