A decision by a referee to stop parents taking pictures of their children at an under-16s football match has led to a Football Association (FA) inquiry.
The referee threatened to abandon the match unless Ken Paine stopped taking pictures of his 15-year-old son, Jake.
Mr Paine said other people who saw the discussion taking place at the Ashford game made comments about paedophiles.
The Kent FA said the referee acted in good faith, but child protection had not been totally understood.

It said fresh guidelines on child protection were being issued to local clubs in coming weeks.
