Police are investigating racist comments made against footballer Ashley Cole on social networking site Twitter, just days after his team-mate John Terry was cleared of racism.

A user, believed to be a man from the Derbyshire area, referred to Chelsea star Cole as a "choc ice" on the site and Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand then replied: "I hear you fella! Choc ice is classic hahahahahaha!!".

Derbyshire Police said it was now investigating the original Tweet after receiving complaints from members of the public.
