Tables and chairs and parasols were broken in the beer garden of the Old Post Office pub in Newark following England's exit from the football World Cup last night.

Door staff were assisted by police to quell rowdy behaviour at the Kirkgate pub.

A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said they were informed by town centre CCTV operators at 9.40pm.

The spokesman said officers attended and spoke to revellers, offered advice to staff and made sure the venue was safe.

No arrests were made.

The pub said prior to the end of the semi-final game, which England lost 2-1 to Croatia in extra time, there was "giddy drunkenness."

However, a spokesman said several tables and chairs were smashed, parasols were broken and the fairy lights torn down from the gazebo roof after the final whistle.

"It was general idiot behaviour from people who had previously been good natured and having a great night," the spokesman said.

"The bouncers and then the police intervened.

"The police are normally very good in providing back-up to the bouncers when they are needed."

The spokesman said the damage would cost a lot of money to put right.

The pub and its garden area is open as usual.

A video of showing drunken chanting directed towards the arriving officers is currently trending on social media but does not show any of the damage caused.
