The father of England footballer John Terry has been charged with racially aggravated assault after an argument on a London street.

It has been revealed that Ted Terry was arrested after the incident on Fenchurch Street on March 22.

Mr Terry, 59, was also charged with racially aggravated fear of violence when answering bail at Bishopsgate police station yesterday.

He will appear in court later this month, along with Tudor Musteata, 47, and Stephen Niland, 36.

Chelsea star John Terry was found not guilty in court of a racially motivated public order offence, after being accused of yelling racist abuse at Queen’s Park Rangers’ Anton Ferdinand during a match.

However, the FA gave him a £220,000 fine and a four-match ban after it found he did racially abuse Ferdinand.
