"England's World Cup quarter-final victory over Sweden attracted a huge 89 percent of available audience to BBC One, with a peak of 19.9 million", the BBC said in a statement.

Millwall fans are collecting for the London Ambulance Service after a auto was damaged by people dancing on it.

London Ambulance Service said there was "no excuse" for the vandalism which meant the vehicle was unable to respond to patients after suffering a smashed windscreen and dented bonnet.

There was a little too much enthusiasm in one area of London, however, where revellers jumped on an ambulance auto, causing enough damage for it to be taken out of service for repairs.

An Ikea spokeswoman said: "We are aware of a small group of fans celebrating the match result in one of our stores".

Now Millwall Supporters' Club want to raise £5,000 to help fix the emergency response vehicle and get it back on the road.

"This vehicle is now off the road and unable to respond to patients".

There were jubilant scenes in homes, pubs and streets as the Three Lions clinched a 2-0 win over Sweden in a dramatic match in Russian Federation.

Nottinghamshire Police said a 27-year-old man had been arrested for damaging a taxi and a number of arrests were made for public order offences.

The emergency services hit out at the "disgraceful" minority of England fans who marked their team's passage to the World Cup semi-finals with disorder.

He added that for England's semi-final game against Croatia on Wednesday, there would be an increased police presence and asked people to consider their actions.
