AN ANTI-ISLAMIC football group is being investigated by Newcastle United lawyers.
The club is taking legal advice after their black and white crest was used by English Defence League Newcastle – a right-wing group which campaigns against Muslim extremism.
The EDL has made its first steps to infiltrate football in the North East by setting up a Facebook group on the internet.
It has already attracted more than 600 members.
Magpie bosses are keen for people to know that the club is in no way connected to the extremist body
