A teenager arrested for allegedly making racist remarks at a football match will face no further action, Cumbria Police have said.

The 15-year-old was held on suspicion of racially aggravated harassment at the FA Cup game between Carlisle United and Everton on 31 January.

Officers told him on Wednesday no further action would be taken.

Two men aged 18 and 19 remain on bail for the same alleged offence.

Everton won the fourth round tie 3-0.
