Visiting football fans were arrested for chanting homophobic abuse at the Amex on the same night that Millwall and Albion signed an anti-homophobia charter.

Sussex Police arrested three Millwall fans during Albion’s clash with their South London rivals on Tuesday night for using threatening, abusive or insulting words.
