Footage of scenes outside the Walkabout Pub on Union Street in Plymouth city center shows jubilant fans celebrating England’s 2-1 win over their Group G rivals. However, things take a turn when the crowd spills out onto the street and into the path of a passing car.

Rambunctious supporters begin clamouring on top of the car before a rotund gentleman in a hooded sweatshirt and shorts finds himself on the hood. As he dances and punches the air, the driver of the car speeds up, pinning the unwelcome passenger to the windshield. The driver then brakes quickly, sending the man flying off the car and into the street.
