River rage as rugby fans take a jump off Eel Pie Island bridge
A group of rugby fans jumped off the bridge at Eel Pie Island after the Army v Navy match over the bank holiday weekend.
A crew from Teddington RNLI was called to Twickenham Riverside on May 3, after the match at Twickenham stadium, where a group of men had jumped into the Thames.
In video footage captured by the rescue crew, two of the group can be seen running along on the footbridge, before they jumped into the water in front of a packed riverside.
No one was injured and the group recovered themselves from the river unharmed.
The fixture has become synonymous with rowdy behaviour over the years, with pubs closing early to prevent too much trouble.
