The alleged anti-Semitic chants from a section of West Ham supporters during yesterday’s Premier League match against Tottenham have been reported to the police.

The chairman of the Society of Black Lawyers Peter Herbert confirmed his organisation had already notified police after some Hammers supporters appeared to mock the gassing of Jews in the Holocaust during the match at White Hart Lane.

Asked if he would take the issue to the police, Peter Herbert told Sky Sports News: “We’ve done so already.

“In fact we were due to meet a borough commander of the Met Police either later this week or early next week and it’s one of the things that will be on our agenda.

“As far as we’re concerned there has to be zero tolerance of this. If these people can be identified on camera and prosecuted then that is something we’d like to see happen.”
