West Ham have banned a group of fans involved in a viral video appearing to snort suspicious-looking white powder at the London Stadium.
The footage, which was uploaded to social media this week, shows one supporter putting the powder on a bald man’s head and another appearing to snort the contents in front of a group of thoroughly entertained fans.
West Ham have since condemned their behaviour and banned them from the London Stadium.
‘The Club is disgusted by the contents of the video and acted swiftly to identify the offenders’, a club spokesman said.
‘In line with our zero-tolerance approach, details of the offenders were immediately passed on to the police and all individuals had their Season Tickets suspended and are therefore unable to enter London Stadium and travel with the Club for away fixtures.

‘Pending our own club investigation, this could lead to the offenders being banned indefinitely.
‘There is no place for this kind of behaviour.’
Sportsmail has also approached the Met Police for comment.
At the start of the shocking video clip, the fans break out into laughter as one supporter shouts: ‘Go on, video that… Go on get in there.’
Another man proceeds to yell out: ‘Let’s f***ing have it! Irons, Irons.’
