Female broadcaster reports anti-Semitic comments made by fan going to match on train

Female broadcaster Abbi Summers reports anti-Semitic comments made by what seems to be a fan going to a match on a train on Wednesday.

She wrote a social media post outing the culprit as they travelled on the Tube heading for White Hart Lane prior to the Carabao Cup game between Tottenham and West Ham.

A video included in the post has one on to get over 300,000 views, and you can hear the Abbi outraged at what she just heard, calling them out whilst he tried to act hard in front of his mates as they sung.

Summers wrote: Hi @metpoliceuk would like to report an incident on the 18:45 train from liverpool street to white hart lane. This man continuously shouting anti Semitic comments and behaviour and clearly not sorry when called up on…

This got a huge amount of reaction, but with the help of that, this prompted a swift response from the police themselves who replied back: “Please DM us directly so that we can discuss this further.
Thanks.” while MPS Haringey said: “@abbisummers We are aware of this footage and have shared it with our colleagues at @BTP, which is responsible for policing London’s rail network.”

Meanwhile, five arrests were made in total following a the crowd trouble outside the ground as Tottenham beat West Ham 2-1 to reach the Carabao Cup semi-finals.

The two sets of fans came to blows before the game with several police officers forced to intervene with a number of incidents also reported to have happened inside the stadium throughout the game.

The arrests were for violent disorder, actual bodily harm, drunk and disorderly behaviour and assaulting an emergency worker.

One fan was also arrested on suspicion of invading the pitch.

The two teams were competing for a semi-final spot, with Spurs winning thanks to goals from Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura.

Metropolitan Police said a “robust and proportionate policing plan” was in place for the fixture, with officers responding to “sporadic” fighting outside the ground. See more on that HERE.
