Charges over Campbell abuse

13 Jan 2009 - 13:58:12

Eleven people have been charged with indecent chanting at a football match following arrests over alleged racist and homophobic abuse aimed at Portsmouth defender Sol Campbell.

Hampshire police launched an investigation following complaints after Campbell was targeted during a match against former club Tottenham Hotspur at Fratton Park on September 28, 2008.

The 11 individuals, of which three are juveniles and one is aged just 13, have been bailed by police to appear at Portsmouth Magistrates' Court on January 20.

A police spokeswoman also confirmed that a further five men, whose images were caught on camera, are still being sought.

The Football Association has already said it will ban for life any fans proven to have been chanting abuse.
