Video has emerged of Manchester City fans taunting their United counterparts by singing a sick song about the Munich Air Disaster.

The footage has been uploaded onto Youtube with the tagline: DISGUSTING! Man City Fans Mock Munich Air Disaster With Chant Outside Old Trafford After Derby.

Twenty-three people, including Manchester United players and staff as well as journalists, died when a plane crashed while attempting to take off in Munich in 1958. The Manchester United team were returning home from Yugoslavia following a European match against Red Star Belgrade.

Dubliner Liam Whelan was among eight of the 'Busby Babes' who dies in the tragedy.

The vile footage from outside Old Trafford on Sunday shows a group of Manchester City fans singing about the disaster while a policeman on horseback attempts to keep them under control.
