Two Watford fans were seen "covered in blood" in violence after the Hornets victory over Everton.

Police responded to a brawl which broke out in Vicarage Road, shortly after the 1-0 win.

The East of England Ambulance service say they were called at 5.11pm, sending an ambulance and a rapid response vehicle to the scene.

Hertfordshire Constabulary say two men were taken to hospital with bruising and cuts to their faces.

Four men have been arrested in connection with the incident, the force says.

Police say reports of a stabbing are not true.

As the violence unfolded, BBC reporter Rick Kelsey tweeted: "Outside @WatfordFC loads of police after fighting between coaches and railings next to crowd.

"Two Watford fans on ground covered in blood. Ambulances on scene."

He added he could see one man, possibly aged in his 30s, "not moving", as ambulances rushed to the scene.

Watford Observer:

Watford supporter Lewis, 31, who did not want to give his full name, said he heard a lot of shouting as he was leaving the stadium after the match and "went to take a look".

He said he saw "a Watford fan lying on the floor, apparently unconscious, with blood on his face" and "three Everton fans running from the scene towards the town centre".

He added: "Friends around him were crying and shouting for people to help and call an ambulance."

In a video posted online, someone can be heard shrieking while another repeatedly shouts "coward".

The brawl is believed to have begun by the away coaches and spilled into Vicarage Road Cemetery.

Away fans still on the coach were not allowed to get off and the area was sealed off by police.
