On the same day that their good-natured parody video of Chelsea was released by West Ham supporters, a more sinister one has emerged on Twitter tonight featuring a group of Hammers' fans.

Travelling through Stamford Hill, a well-known Jewish part of London, the video claims to feature Hammers supporters singing anti-semitic songs on the train on the way to White Hart Lane to watch today's London derby against Spurs, which ended 2-2.

The video was posted on Twitter yesterday evening.

WARNING: VIDEO CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE

The clip concludes a shameful week for supporters of Premier League clubs, after a group of Chelsea fans were filmed singing racist chants and not allowing a black man onto a train in Paris on Tuesday.

Metropolitan Police say they have spoken to the men in connection with the incident and will continue to liaise with French authorities.

During the incident, ahead of the club's 1-1 draw with Paris St-Germain, some British fans repeatedly pushed away a black French man who was trying to board the train, shouting: “We’re racist and that’s the way we like it.”
