Group of Network Rail staff face sack over racist posts in a message group

A GROUP of Network Rail staff face the sack over racist posts in a message group arranging five-a-side football games.

Three men were suspended and five others probed over sickening messages praising slavery and the Ku Klux Klan.

Racist “jokes” about lynching and rape were posted in the Facebook Messenger group called Sir Winston’s Wanderers.

A whistle-blower told bosses about the group in Grimsby and Barnetby, Lincolnshire.

A source said: “It was really sickening hardcore racism.

"An internal investigation’s on with about 30 people spoken to.”

A spokesman confirmed the probe, insisting: “Harassment and discrimination have no place at Network Rail.”
