Penalty punch-up! Huge brawl breaks out between England fans at pub that charged 50 a table after Three Lions beat Colombia.

Mass brawl breaks out between football fans during last night's match at pub Command House in Chatham, Kent 'got greedy' by selling tables at 50.

A shocking 20-person brawl broke out during the England game last night at a Kent pub that charged punters 50 a table.

The scenes show female football fans joining in on the scuffle as a group of men wearing Three Lions T-shirts lay into each other during the England versus Colombia match.

One woman is seen repeatedly punching a man as he attacks another man who's cowering on the ground.

A fan screams 'Go on girl!' as the woman, who is wearing a clingy orange dress launches herself at the fracas.

The ugly scenes were filmed at the Command House in Chatham, Kent, which had earlier in the week been criticised for charging fans 50 a table.

Beer cans and alcohol can be seen flying in the two-minute clip before two security guards and staff try to calm the situation.

At one point at least 20 people were involved as the fight spiralled out of control in the pub's large garden.

A second blonde woman then becomes involved as rival groups push and shove each other.

The horrifying finale to England's win on penalties drew widespread condemnation from Facebook users who said it showed the very worst side of football.

Linda Feheley said: 'Should be a spirit of togetherness for the England team not beating the s*** out of your fellow supporters.'

Sharon Knight simply said: 'And people wonder why Medway has a bad name.'

Georgina Hawes said: 'The pub got greedy by selling tables and not enough security but they are all adults and should behave like it - absolutely shameful.'

Marylyn Ducasse-Hunter added: 'What a load of morons, they should all be celebrating together that we won.' She then added: 'Makes you feel ashamed, doesn't it?'

Earlier in the week, Kent Online reported that tickets for tables at the popular pub, showing each game on big screens in their gardens, had sold out sparking many to criticize the establishment for not providing adequate security.

Wayne Wilkinson added: 'Command House needs to be held accountable for it as I didn't see many security guards to police it.

'Would have thought at 50 a table they would have thought it through.

'It is Chatham after all.'

Mail Online has contacted Kent police for comment.

Rescue caught on camera after vessel stranded in River Medway at Chatham.

Two people in a rowing boat had to be rescued after their vessel became stranded in the middle of the River Medway.

The alarm was raised at about 4pm after the pair got into trouble in the water near The Command House in Chatham.

Crowds watched from the riverbank as the emergency services were called.

A Coastguard crew was sent to oversee the rescue operation, while firefighters and police were also there to help.

The people on board appeared to have managed to tether the boat to a buoy and could be seen on the phone.

It is not known how they came to be stuck.

A rescue boat was launched from the slipway near the pub and the stranded pair were brought back to shore.
