British Transport Police are examining a CCTV video appearing to show racist chanting at London’s St Pancras station by men believed to be Chelsea fans returning from Paris after a Champions League game, UK’s BBC reported.

The video was apparently filmed on Wednesday, only a day after Chelsea’s 1-1 draw against Paris St Germain at Parc Des Princes.

The British Transport Police called for anyone with more details to contact them, according to the daily.

It is the second time that a video involving racist chants from Chelsea supporters appears in less than a week,

On Tuesday, supporters of the Premier League leaders were caught on camera preventing a black man, identified only as Souleymane, from boarding a Metro train while chanting racist comments in Paris.

Chelsea fans condemned the incident by showing a banner reading 'Black or white, we're all blue' at Stamford Bridge before their Premier League clash with Burnley on Saturday.

The club’s manager Jose Mourinho spoke of his shame over the incident.

“We feel ashamed but maybe we shouldn't because I refuse to be connected with these people,” Mourinho said.

Mourinho said his multi-cultural squad were affected by the incident.

“The dressing-room reacted the way I react, with disappointment ... but always with the feeling we do not belong to these people and they do not belong to us,” he added.
