Campaigners fighting racism in football say much more needs to be done from local to international level following the abuse of England players in Bulgaria last night.

Volunteers who run teams in Bradford say they regularly witness racism at amateur games and say tougher punishment is needed.

Ejecting them from the pitch is one thing but for people who don't know this week is hate crime week in England and in England it's a crime to hurl racist abuse at anybody else and I think they should be arrested.
