One witness said: "Some have raised the fences, others have jumped, there was much pushing and then the fighting".
After a few minutes, a group of dozens of riot police had to intervene to try to stop the riots. Due to the launch of bottles by dozens of young people, the agents had no choice but to respond with rubber bullets shots.
Until five in the morning could not control all these crowds of beasts that were spreading violence of their actions through some streets of Madrid.
