Things got well out of hand in London today as England fans were seen trampling on an ambulance amid wild celebrations.

With the Shard in the backdrop by Borough Market, dozens of supporters crowded around a London ambulance and egged people to climb aboard.

And several people happily obliged, posing for photos as they did following Englands historic 2-0 win over Sweden.

Footage from the chaotic scenes shows the crowd singing we want Jackie Chan before a man jumps on to the ambulance.

He was then followed by a man dressed in a Gareth Southgate waistcoat before the police arrived to prevent any further damage.

The fans badly dented the ambulances bonnet and smashed the windscreen, taking the important vehicle out of action.

In a tweet following the incident, the LAS said it left a big dampener on the celebrations.

We're delighted with the result, but this has put a big dampener on the celebrations for us: while our officer attended a call nearby, this car was damaged in Borough High Street during the celebrations after the game – it's now off the road to be repaired. pic.twitter.com/V71kOEn4OO

It was far from the only act of overzealous celebrations, as fans all over the country partied hard.

Some supporters in east London even raided an Ikea and trashed the place just to rub salt in the Swedish wounds.
