A LOCAL dad arrested on suspicion of sending racist Tweets after the Euros is still under investigation say police.

Nick Scott, from Powick, made national headlines in July after the Worcester News reported on a tweet written to Marcus Rashford after England lost the Euro 2020 final, which came from Mr Scott’s Twitter account.

The tweet read: "@MarcusRashford that MBE needs burning ya fake. Pack them bags and get to ya own country" and caused outrage among the community.

After first apologising about the Tweet the morning after, Mr Scott then claimed on Twitter that he was hacked.

A spokesman for West Mercia Police said today: "There is no further update at this time, however the investigation is still ongoing."

He also said that these type of enquires 'take a significant amount of time to complete.'

Across the county 11 people were arrested by police investigating online racial abuse of England players.

Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka were targeted after they missed penalties in the shoot-out defeat at Wembley.

The UK Football Policing Unit said of the 207 posts on social media identified as criminal, 123 accounts belong to individuals outside the United Kingdom.

The details of those individuals and cases are in the process of being passed on to the relevant countries to act on them.

A total of 34 accounts have so far been identified as being in the UK, and 11 of these account holders have now been arrested.

The FA said in a statement: “We will not tolerate any form of discrimination and we hope these arrests act as a clear deterrent for perpetrators for online abuse who believe there will be no real-world consequences for their actions.

“The importance of reporting abusive posts should not be underestimated and we thank the individuals and organisations who have supported this investigation so far.

“We will continue to work with players, fans, our stakeholders across the game and the relevant authorities to ensure that the strongest possible action is taken against those found proven to have posted online discriminatory abuse."
