Philadelphia Eagles fans have got so excited about winning the Super Bowl they’ve gone and trashed their beloved city.

Police in riot gear were alerted to the scene after multiple injuries were sustained by rowdy supporters.

At least one horse was stolen amid the fracas on South Broad Street following the Eagles’ victory against the New England Patriots.

Police are looking into incident of vandalism, wrecked traffic signals and overturned planters. The awning of the Ritz Carlton hotel also collapsed thanks to over-zealous fans.

Video shows the extent of the looting:

One tweeter wrote:

So far in Philly tonight: a police horse has been stolen (one recovered), an off-duty cop has been arrested, Looting at Macy’s, countless people on light poles, Ritz Carlton awning has collapsed, and the rocky statue will likely fall by the morning.

Thanks to the hashtag #PhiladelphiaPoliceScanner, a list of things said by officials was gathered.

They included some of the following:

I need to get the fire extinguisher out of my trunk. Someone lit a Christmas tree on fire.

A man jumped off the light pole and landed on his head.

They just flipped a car over here. If you could get a medical response team over here, I’d greatly appreciate it. 

It’s endless, chief. Endless

They’re on top of trash trucks. There is to be no one on top of trash trucks, guys. 

The Philadelphia Eagles claimed their first ever Super Bowl on a historic night at Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Labelled as underdogs heading into Sunday’s post-season finale, Philadelphia were made to work hard by Tom Brady’s New England Patriots team.

The Eagles, who last won an NFL Championship in 1960, led for most of the game but the Patriots took the lead for the first time with less than ten minutes remaining in the final quarter.

With his side trailing by just a single point, 32-33, quarterback Nick Foles found Zach Ertz who dived into the end zone to take the score to 38-33 with a touchdown confirmed after review.

The pivotal moment came shortly after with Brandon Graham sacking Brady as the Eagles turned over possession with little over two minutes remaining.

Trailing 41-33 with just 65 seconds remaining the challenge was set. Brady needed to march the Pats downfield for a late touchdown and it needed a two-point conversion.

It proved a task too far for the only man you would turn to in such a spot, and the game would finish with the eight point deficit intact.

The win for Philadelphia denied veteran Patriots QB Brady his own slice of history, remaining tied with Charles Haley on five championship titles as a player.
