Football - despite its sometimes fiery image on the pitch - could help children excluded from school improve their behaviour, a study says.

Coaches from Arsenal spent an afternoon a week with 38 troubled pupils in Islington, north London, reducing truancy rates and classroom disruption.

Psychologist Kairen Cullen said they had been good role models for the 11 to 14-year-olds.

Football was an "exciting" way to get through to disaffected youths.
