Police have arrested two men after sick football yobs ‘taunted’ Sunderland fans with a picture of tragic cancer victim Bradley Lowery.
Yesterday pictures surfaced of two Sheffield Wednesday fans, now thought to be brothers, holding up a phone with a picture of young Bradley.
South Yorkshire Police have now revealed two men were arrested ad held in custody overnight.
Bradley Lowery died in 2017 after the young Sunderland fan was diagnosed with a rare cancer neuroblastoma when he was just 18 months old. His story touched many hearts across the world – during his brave battle he was even a special guest of BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year in 2016.
Of the taunting, his heartbroken mother Gemma said: ‘This is so hard for me to see’ in a Facebook post by The Bradley Foundation, adding: ‘What ever happened to cancer has no colours, let alone respect for a family that lost their baby to cancer.’
