Police open probe into 'malicious' mail at QPR

Updated: January 27, 2012, 14:50


LONDON(AP) Police have opened an investigation after Queens Park Rangers reportedly received a package in the mail addressed to defender Anton Ferdinand that contained a bullet.

QPR contacted police on Friday, a day before the team plays Chelsea for the first time since Blues captain John Terry was charged with racially abusing Ferdinand in a Premier League match in October.

Metropolitan Police says in a statement that "we are investigating an allegation of malicious communication received today at QPR football club.''

SKY Sports is reporting that the package contained a bullet.

Chelsea and QPR put out a joint statement Wednesday ahead of the FA Cup fourth-round match appealing for fans to "show the world that hatred has no place in our game.''
