The reports surrounding the European semi-final with Denmark suggest police at the event stood back and ignored the abuse. That doesn't surprise me either.
Why anyone should have the slightest interest in today's final, while these people continue to be allowed to travel to or attend matches, baffles me. This behaviour is more important than the result of any match or tournament.
The whole of this news report is relevant, not merely one quote:
Allan Nielsen told the Observer on Saturday that he saw Denmark fans being spat at and nearby police doing nothing about it. “Overall the whole experience was very frightening and we felt like we were walking in a war zone and that it was just a matter of time before someone would come at us,” he said. “We saw English fans spitting at kids.”

The whole piece should be more widely distributed. Just claiming it's a trivial minority is irrelevant and not even, in my opinion, demonstrated by the facts. If the governing body were obliged to disqualify England from participating in the final it might wake both them and the country up a bit.
