“A man in his 20s has been arrested on suspicion of a racially-aggravated public order offence and taken into police custody,” said Kent police in a statement.

“The club can confirm a lifetime ban has been issued to an individual following an incident during Saturday’s game at home to Newport County,” Gillingham said in a statement.

“We are absolutely disgusted,” said Gillingham director of operations, Joe Comper. “I think it is quite clear – everyone has seen the video and everyone can see what has happened. But it’s important that we, as a club, show that we take it very seriously.” (Trending: Joe Biden Historic Take Down of Guns)
