A teenager found himself in trouble with the police after posting images of his football team's new strip online before its official launch.

Chris Brown, 17, an IT student and Norwich City season-ticket holder, received a visit from police after he gained access to an image of the strip players will wear next season and posted it on Twitter. The club called him at 4.30am on Wednesday demanding an explanation.

Norwich chief executive David McNally said the club would always take steps to protect their property, though their heavy-handed approach was criticised by Chris's mother, Trish.
