A man has been charged after wearing a t-shirt to Wembley Stadium appearing to make an offensive reference to the Hillsborough disaster.

James White was arrested yesterday and has since been charged with displaying threatening or abusive writing likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.

Wembley Stadium was hosting the FA Cup Final on Saturday, which saw Manchester City beat their rivals Manchester United.

The words ‘Not Enough’ were emblazoned with the number ’97’ on the back of the white shirt.

White, 33 and from Warwickshire, will appear at Willesden magistrates court on June 19.

The Metropolitan Police said a further 22 people were arrested during the course of the policing operation around Wembley for offences including assault, affray, possession of drugs and drunk and disorderly behaviour.

Police said inquiries continue in respect of an item thrown onto the pitch shortly after the Manchester United goal, and there has been no arrest at this stage in relation to this matter.

Twitter account @LiverpoolPhotox shared an image of a man wearing the ‘Not Enough’ top, claiming he was a Manchester United fan.

Ninety-seven football fans died as a result of a crush at a match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest at Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield on April 15, 1989.

They were unlawfully killed amid a number of police errors, an inquest jury ruled in 2016.
