Londoners accused of Australian football match fixing

Two men from east London have been charged over match-fixing allegations in Australia.

Footballers Reiss Noel and Joe Woolley, who used to play for non-league team Hornchurch, are accused of helping to fix matches for Melbourne's Southern Stars team. The pair have been charged with betting-related corruption.

The players appeared in an Australian court alongside their coach and other Southern Stars players on Friday.

They have not yet entered a plea.

BBC London's Chris Slegg spoke to ABC reporter Danny Morgan.
