Two men have been arrested on suspicion of sending anti-Semitic messages on Twitter following a Tottenham Hotspur match.

A 24-year-old, from Croydon, and 22-year-old, from Wiltshire, were taken into custody on suspicion of inciting racial hatred after Spurs’ match against West Ham, on October 6.

Both men were arrested at their home homes following an investigation from Haringey police.

As part of the same investigation, a 48-year-old man was arrested at his home address in Canning Town on December 5 for the same offence.

He was taken into custody at a north London police station.

All three men have now been bailed until a date in late January pending further enquiries.

A 55-year-old man from Hemel Hempstead was cautioned for sending a series of anti-Semitic messages on Twitter following the same match.
