Another two men have been arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred following allegations of anti-Semitic comments on Twitter after a West Ham v Spurs match.

The tweets were alleged to have made reference to Hitler and the gas chambers.

A 48-year-old man was arrested at his home in Canning Town December 5 on suspicion of inciting racial hatred and held in custody.

Two more arrests followed yesterday, a 24-year-old in Croydon and a 22-year-old in Wiltshire, Scotland Yard confirmed today.

All three have been given police bail to late January pending further enquiries.
