Police launch race chant probe at Nottingham Forest

Police are investigating chants aimed in the direction of Leicester City supporters by their East Midlands rivals Nottingham Forest.

They are treating the chants as a potential hate crime.

Nottinghamshire Police said it was investigating the “racist” chanting after a video-clip filmed during the club’s FA Cup tie against Leicester was posted online.

The footage, thought to be from the early stages of last Saturday’s 0-0 draw at The City Ground, shows Forest fans singing: “You used to be English, you’re not any more.”
