Soccer  fan who made 'monkey gesture' at  match  in Britain to face no further action from police

Looks like the public outrage over speech bans might be having an effect

Police are to take no further action against a man arrested after being pictured making an alleged racist gesture during a League Cup match between Chelsea and Manchester United

A spectator in the Chelsea supporters' end, Gavin Kirkham, was pictured making a monkey gesture during the home side's 5-4 extra-time victory over United last month.

At the time of his arrest Scotland Yard said the 28-year-old man, photographed in the Matthew Harding stand apparently raising his hands to his armpits in a gesture aimed at United's black striker Danny Welbeck, was spoken to after attending a west London police station by appointment.

The Metropolitan Police said that "following an investigation which included taking witness statements from those around him in the crowd and viewing CCTV footage, a decision was taken with the Crown Prosecution Service to proceed with no further action."

Police did not explain the decision to drop the case against the 28-year-old man, who Chelsea had banned from Stamford Bridge pending the outcome of the investigation.
