Police probe Ferdinand package

The Metropolitan Police are investigating an alleged "malicious communication" sent to Queens Park Rangers footballer Anton Ferdinand.

A package was posted to the defender, according to club sources.

A spokesman for Scotland Yard refused to confirm the intended recipient but said: "I can confirm we are investigating an allegation of malicious communication received today at QPR football club. Officers from Hammersmith and Fulham are investigating."

QPR will play Chelsea in an FA Cup match at their home ground, Loftus Road, in west London on Sunday afternoon. The club announced that security will carry out full searches.

A statement from QPR said: "Ahead of tomorrow's FA Cup fourth-round tie at Loftus Road, we would like to advise supporters from both QPR and Chelsea to arrive early at the stadium.

"Full searches will be carried out ahead of your entry to the ground, so please have your tickets to hand and be ready to be searched.

"Entry to the stadium will be permitted from 10.30am for the midday kick-off.

"We are asking for your full understanding and co-operation."

Chelsea captain John Terry has been charged with racially abusing Ferdinand and is expected to enter a not guilty plea at Westminster Magistrates Court on Wednesday, having repeatedly denied the charge against him.

Rangers manager Mark Hughes has played down reports Ferdinand had spent £30,000 on personal security to ensure a trouble-free journey to Loftus Road.
