Tyrone Mings has revealed he experienced racial profiling while in Chippenham.

In a recent interview, the footballer spoke out about his mental health battles during the Euros, which left him feeling like 95% of the country were "doubting him."

He also spoke about his experiences with racism in Wiltshire.

Mings told the Sun: “I’ve been stopped by police in my car a few times.

“I was in Chippenham — which is where I grew up so you’d think they’d know better — but they pulled me over and said something about my car not being registered around here, and wanted to know why I was in the area.

“I mean, I was in a Range Rover which I’m pretty sure isn’t illegal.

“I’ve had some subtle stuff as well, like being in the shops and getting funny looks, things like that.

Wiltshire Times:

“But I don’t think we are in a time when it’s as bad as it once was. And we’re so fortunate to live in a world where we’re not put in prison for our beliefs, or for the colour of our skin.”

The Aston Villa defender recently made headlines after he hit out at Home Secretary Priti Patel in her condemnation of the racist abuse faced by his teammates.

When Patel tweeted her “disgust” at online abuse of Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka after their penalty shoot-out misses in the final, Mings wrote: “You don’t get to stoke the fire at the beginning of the tournament by labelling our anti-racism message as ‘Gesture Politics’ & then pretend to be disgusted when the very thing we’re campaigning against, happens.”

During the Euros, Mings started England's first two group games while Harry Maguire recovered from injury.

The Aston Villa centre-back, 28, spoke with a psychologist to help him cope with the pressure.

He added: "I did have a tough time in the lead-up to the opening game against Croatia.

"I think I'm a lot more hardened to outside influences now, but my mental health did plummet."
