Chelsea fans guilty of aggravated violence against a black man in Paris

Four Chelsea fans have been found guilty of aggravated violence after they refused to let a black man on to a Paris Metro train.

Joshua Parsons, 22, and James Fairbairn, 25, had denied their actions of February 2015 were racist in nature.

Their co-accused, fellow Chelsea fans Richard Barklie, a 52-year-old former policeman, and William Simpson, 27, were tried in absentia.

They were all handed suspended one-year sentences by French authorities.
