    Discrimination has shamed English football this season.

    Most prominently, Liverpool’s Luis Suarez was banned for eight games for the racial abuse of Patrice Evra, and England captain John Terry faces a criminal trial in July for the alleged racial abuse of an opponent.

    These high-profile racism cases have caused the government to intervene, with leading football figures coming together to discuss the issues at a summit held by Prime Minister David Cameron.

    Lee Wellings reports from London.
