Police have arrested a second man over allegations of anti-Semitic messages posted on Twitter following the football match between Tottenham and West Ham.

The 48-year-old was arrested at his home in Canning Town on Thursday morning. He was later released on police bail until a date in January.

Police have been investigating an allegation of inciting racial hatred, following a tweet posted to the social network site in connection with the Premier League clash.

Last month, officers cautioned a 55-year-old man from Hemel Hempstead for malicious communications following the same match on October 6.
