A 44-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence, following an appeal by the British transport police (BTP).
According to PC Michael Botterill a man “boarded the train at Watford Junction, took his seat in the first class carriage. A group of West Ham fans were already seated and, as the train pulled away, they began to sing anti-Semitic songs. The man, quite rightly, took offence to these vile songs and challenged the group over their language. However, they refused to stop and continued with their chanting.”
