Research by Sky Sports News suggests nearly nine in 10 fans have witnessed racist behaviour at football matches in the UK.

A Sky Data Poll suggests around 71% of black and ethnic minority fans suffered racist abuse at least once, and 18% say they are personally abused often or every time they attend a match.

Former England and Premier League footballer John Barnes spoke to Sky’s Kay Burley and said a new approach needs to be taken to tackle abuse at football grounds.
