Howard Webb halts play during Greece's match with Croatia after serious crow trouble.

Referee Howard Webb was forced to halt the Euro 2012 qualifier between Greece and Croatia after crowd trouble.

The Englishman suspended play for six minutes soon after kick-off as Greek fans stormed the pitch, while others threw missiles, including chairs and petrol bombs, at away supporters.

Riot police then responded with pepper spray and batons.

Once play resumed, Greece won 2-0 thanks to goals from Theofanis Gekas and Giorgios Samaras.
