Police on Tuesday charged 11 people with indecent chanting at a football match.

They were arrested in connection with alleged racist and homophobic chanting towards Portsmouth defender Sol Campbell during a match against Tottenham at Fratton Park on September 28 last year.

The 11, including three juveniles, have been bailed by police to appear at Portsmouth Magistrates' Court on January 20.

A Hampshire police spokeswoman said a further five men captured in photographs taken at the game were still being sought.

Those charged are Dean Nelson, 23, of Southbury Road, Enfield, north London; Bradley Barnes, 35, of Malmesbury Park Road, Bournemouth, Dorset; Oliver Silvester, 28, of High Street, Southampton, Hampshire; Stuart Turner, 34, of Queen Street, Wellington, Telford, Shropshire; Richard Allen Gibbs, 35, of Ormonde Road, Wokingham, Berkshire; Ian Trow, 48, of Kingshill Drive, Deans Hanger, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire; Keith Stevens, 54, of Portland Close, Hailsham, East Sussex and Joe Turner, 18, of The Lindons, Langdon Hills, Basildon, Essex.

The three youths charged were a 15-year-old from Winchmore Hill, north London, a 15-year-old from Purley, Surrey, and a 13-year-old from Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire.

The police spokeswoman added no further action would be taken against another man, aged 18, from Essex.
