UK: Anti-semitic chanting by Leeds United fans

Police are investigating claims a group of Leeds United fans sang anti-semitic songs on a train back from a game. 
British Transport Police say complaints were made following United’s 3-1 win at Birmingham City on April 26. 
Investigating officer PC Gareth Swiffen said: “Upon arrival at Leeds a number of passengers on the service made complaints to rail staff with regards to some of the fans engaging in anti-social behaviour on the train and chanting anti-Semitic songs
“As you can understand, this was an intimidating and upsetting experience for people on board the train who were extremely offended by some of the fans’ actions.
