Liam Stacey 'sorry' for racist Muamba tweets


A man jailed for making racist comments on twitter after the footballer Fabrice Muamba's collapse says he is "massively sorry" for his actions.

Liam Stacey, from Pontypridd, served half his 56-day prison term. At the time, a district judge in Swansea called the comments "vile and abhorrent".

Speaking for the first time to BBC Wales, he says he "didn't intend on being a racist" when he got up that day, blaming the incident on "drunken stupidity".
