Soccer fans bailed in banner probe

Published Add your comment

Six football fans arrested after an offensive banner was unfurled at Millwall have all been released on bail.

A sign directed at Bolton striker Marvin Sordell, who was racially abused by one of the club's fans last month, was unveiled at The Den during the Lions' 2-1 win against Derby in the npower Championship on Saturday.

The banner related to complaints made by Sordell after he was abused by fans while warming up for a match on October 6, leading to a 13-year-old boy being banned from Millwall's ground.
