Liverpool FC fans ‘unfairly blamed’ over Uefa Champions League chaos

When police used tear gas amid chaotic scenes outside the Champions League final in Paris in May, the French authorities were quick to blame Liverpool supporters.

But now a report from the French Senate has said that initial judgement was used to “divert attention” from the failures of the organisers.

The report was welcomed by the Liverpool fans’ groups who called for a full apology from the French government.
