Lawrence chants 'disturbing and upsetting'

Speaking after the sentencing of seven football fans jailed for chants that glorified Stephen Lawrence's murderer, Baljit Ubhey, the CPS London Chief Crown Prosecutor, said:

"To glorify and idolise these men was disturbing and upsetting."

"Their racially and sexually abusive language left members of the public shocked and disgusted. Witnesses said they felt intimidated and feared there was a real and significant risk of violence."
