Although Hertfordshire police had a different angle.

Oh, and this also happened while Nigeria were playing Argentina.

We would like to apologise to anyone who has been offended by the tweets issued by Hertfordshire Constabulary linked to the World Cup. Our only aim was to give crime prevention advice about issues which may affect communities in Hertfordshire, having researched crime issues for the countries involved in the tournament. In order to prevent any further offence we have removed the posts.
