A cricket club has put its players on an 'enhanced education' course after offensive tweets were unearthed from 10 years ago. 

More than 50 offensive tweets sent by five players for Lancashire County Cricket Club, dating back to 2011, came to light last month.

The club condemned the tweets and launched an internal probe.

It is believed three of the players were under 18 at the time of the tweets, which had remained on the players accounts until they were unearthed by a local newspaper.

The offensive posts were deleted when the club were made aware of them by the paper.

At least one of the players joined in a three-day social media boycott a lack of action of protesting hateful messages on platforms earlier this year.

The club launched an investigation into the provocative posts and committed itself to 'ongoing enhanced education' for its players.

England's cricket stars are being forced to sit through awkward 'unconscious bias workshops' 

England's cricket stars were lectured on 'workplace banter' and 'inappropriate non-verbal behaviour' from diversity consultants who specialise in 'experiential actor-based unconscious bias training' amid the 'racist' tweets row.

Players including James Anderson , Stuart Broad and Joe Root were forced to attend the diversity workshops since March.

The Professional Cricketers' Association enforced the classes on all county and international players 'as part of a zero-tolerance approach to racial discrimination'.
