Chelsea and the Football Association have been criticised by a campaigning group after the police announced no action will be taken over alleged comments made by referee Mark Clattenburg.

Chelsea made a complaint to the FA alleging the referee had used inappropriate language, understood to have been interpreted as a racist remark, to midfielder John Obi Mikel. Although the club did not involve the police, the Society of Black Lawyers (SBL) made a complaint to the Metropolitan Police based on media reports of the alleged incident.

Scotland Yard announced on Tuesday night no action would be taken "because no victims had come forward" - and that has prompted criticism of Chelsea and the FA by SBL chair Peter Herbert for not going to the police.
