Two football fans have been charged with racism offences following the Norwich City v Watford game on Saturday.

Bronson Sims, 18, from Longwick, Buckinghamshire, and David Bonner, 46, from Wealdstone in London, were arrested during Norwich's 3-0 victory at Carrow Road.

The pair are due to appear before Norwich Magistrates on 4 September after being charged with racially aggravated threatening behaviour.
