A man who was arrested after homophobic comments were made at the Leicester City v Brighton football match at the weekend has been charged.

Jason Holmes, 44, from Leicester, has been charged with chanting indecently under Section 3 of the Football Offences Act. He will be appearing at Leicester Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 14 September.

A second man, aged 21, who was arrested on suspicion of making obscene gestures was given a conditional caution.

Three people were ejected from the ground for disorderly behaviour. Two were Brighton fans and one was a Leicester City fan. Their details will be passed on to the respective clubs for them to consider their attendance at future matches.
