COUNCIL bosses want to stamp out hate across the town following the response England footballers received after Sunday's match.

Players Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford, and Bukayo Saka received a torrent of racist abuse after they missed penalties in the final of the Euros on Sunday.

In response to the abuse, council bosses want to urge residents to report hate crime to help stamp out racism across the borough.

A spokesperson for Barnsley council said: “There's no place for hate in Barnsley, and we're encouraging everyone to report hate crime when they see it.

“If you've been a victim of hate crime, please report it to us we will support you.”

To report a hate crime email with the word HATE in the subject line or text 61009 with the word HATE, followed by a short message saying what you need help with.
