Black England ,racially abused on Twitter after defeat

Chelsea defender Ashley Cole and Manchester United winger Ashley Young were singled out for attacks on Twitter by vile users.
In a series of offensive postings one 'troll' goaded other users who criticised him for his rants.
The tweeter wrote: “All I got to say is this was just a joke, you guys need to relax, police know i was kiddin around and they won’t bother me hopefully, cheers.”
Another posting read: “The police won’t bother me mate i can assure you that.”
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “We are aware of alleged racist comments on Twitter following last night’s England game and have launched an investigation.
“The allegation was a member of the public relating to comments on a Twitter account supposedly based in London.
“No arrests at this early stage.
“The MPS is examining possible offences under Section 18/19 Public Order Act 1986.”
Meanwhile trouble erupted last night when a 150-strong mob of football fans confronted Italian supporters following England’s crushing quarter-final defeat on penalties, forcing the High Street in Bedford, Beds, to be shut.
Town centre pubs were crammed with around 1,200 England fans who spilled out after the game ended in Kiev.
As numbers swelled, police secured a cordon around the crowd and closed the High Street.
But a mob of around 150 supporters broke away and headed to Italian fan stronghold at The Embankment pub.
The gang damaged a number of vehicles driven by celebrating Azzuri supporters and attacked one person.
