Manchester United fan's offensive sticker gets red card

A Manchester United fan was told by police she faced legal action unless she removed part of a car sticker teasing rivals Man City.

Sarah Webb-Lee (39) sported a sticker on her Vauxhall Corsa which read: “On the first day God created United then completely f***** up and created City.”

Inspector Stephen Gilbertson said: We received a complaint about the language contained in a car sticker that, by law, is offensive.

“All we did is make the relevant people aware and asked them to either remove the sticker or some letters within the swear word, which they willingly did.

“It is important to stress this had nothing whatsoever to do with any football team and was solely in relation to an offensive word.”
