Hunt wades into racism row


Football must not return to the "bad old days" following recent high-profile racism rows, the Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt warned yesterday, as it emerged that David Cameron is to hold talks to discuss the problem.

Mr Hunt said the failure of Liverpool forward Luis Suarez to shake hands with Manchester United's Patrice Evra on Saturday was "incredibly depressing".

The sport's authorities and players' representatives are due to take part in the Downing Street meeting, which will include Mr Hunt, this month.
