A man caught on camera making hateful comments about a sporting tragedy has been banned from every stadium in the country.

James Blake, 42, was arrested by Northumbria Police after the video of his hateful remarks about the Munich Air Disaster circulated online following Newcastle United’s match against Manchester City on September 27 

Mr Blake was charged and pleaded guilty to a public order offence at North Tyneside Magistrates’ Court on October 27.

He was served with a three-year football banning order restricting him from attending any regulated matches in the UK.

The order also bans Mr Blake from travelling abroad for international games, and has stringent limitations on his proximity to games involving Newcastle or England.

Superintendent Paul Walters, of Northumbria Police, said: "This kind of hateful speech has absolutely no place in our communities or online.

"I am therefore pleased that the seriousness of James Blake’s offence has been recognised by the courts."

His Newcastle United season ticket was also revoked.

In response, a spokesperson for Newcastle United said: "Tragedy-related chanting and gesturing is completely unacceptable and Newcastle United is committed to working with authorities and the wider football community to eradicate it."
