West Ham fans arrested for Nazi salutes
Two West Ham supporters were cautioned by police yesterday for aiming anti-Semitic taunts at Tottenham supporters during Sunday's Premier League clash at White Hart Lane.
A section of West Ham’s support was reported to have mocked the gassing of Jews in the Holocaust and chanted about Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler during the London derby, which Tottenham won 3-1.
And Scotland Yard revealed that two Hammers fans accepted police cautions after being arrested during the game.
A spokesman for London’s Metropolitan Police said: “Two men were arrested during the football match between Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham on Sunday November 25 on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence. The men accepted a police caution.”
