Tottenham have announced they will meet with Kick It Out and the police next week to discuss the issue of anti-Semitism.

The Society of Black Lawyers (SBL) have criticised Tottenham for what they see as a lack of action against home fans using the words "Yid" or "Yiddo" in chants at White Hart Lane.

The SBL say the songs are anti-Semitic, but Tottenham, who have a strong Jewish following, insist their fans have used the controversial terms "as a defence mechanism in order to own the term and thereby deflect anti-Semitic abuse".
