The Metropolitan Police have charged a person with “racist, anti-Semitic and hateful tweets” despatched in late 2020 after Chelsea helped establish the offender.
The charges cowl nearly a full 12 months from 5 February 2020 and three February 2021 and show that the web won’t be a hiding place for malicious racist habits.
An announcement from Met Police confirmed: “Nathan Blagg 21 (07.01.00) in Retford, Nottinghamshire, has been charged with seven counts of sending an offensive / indecent / obscene / threatening message / violation of the Harmful Communications Act.
“The fees cover a period from February 5, 2020 to February 3, 2021. He has been charged with the mail request. He is due to appear in Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Friday, October 8. ”
The central football unit led the investigation, with Blagg first arrested in February 2021.

Last year, a judge in Ireland decided not to impose a criminal conviction on a teenager who had sent 20 abusive messages to former English striker Ian Wright via Instagram. Wright, who had accepted an apology as part of the proceedings, later expressed disappointment at the lack of conviction and explained that he did not expect an apology to offer a lesser punishment.
Chelsea have pledged to eradicate racist and discriminatory behavior and promised earlier this week to take the “robust attainable motion” against a man who has seen sectarian abuse of Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn during a Premier League match at Stamford Bridge.
