Seven men who allegedly chanted racist songs at St Pancras station have contacted police Getty

Seven suspected Chelsea fans who allegedly sang racist chants at St Pancras Station following their side's match with Paris Saint-Germain have come forward.

Police released images of the suspects on 24 February after reports claimed they had sang racist songs 24 hours after a black man called Souleymane S was shoved off the Paris Metro by abusive football fans. The men have since contacted police over the allegations.

Detective Sergeant Steven Graysmark said: "I want anyone who knows the men in the photographs to come forward. I believe the seven, thought to be Chelsea fans, can help us with the investigation. Do you know any of the men in the images? If so, please contact BTP."

The appeal came after three men were identified by the Metropolitan Police as having links with the incident in Paris.

One of the men, Richard Barklie, 50, of Carrickfergus, County Antrim, has since apologised for his part in the racism but denied chanting "we're racist, we're racist, and that's the way we like it".
