Chelsea fan 'will not return to work' until racism inquiry ends

A Chelsea fan embroiled in a racism row on the Paris Métro appears to have been suspended by his employers.

Josh Parsons, 21, was identified on Twitter as being among a large crowd of fans present when a black man was pushed off the train, with supporters going on to chant: "We're racist, we're racist, and that's the way we like it."

Josh Parsons is believed to have been on board the Paris Metro train at the time of the incident.

In a statement published on the company's Facebook page, The Business & Commercial Finance Club said:

We are utterly opposed to racism in all of its forms and would never tolerate racist conduct among any employee.

We are investigating the events in Paris and Mr Parsons will not return to work until we have conducted a full and thorough investigation.
