A plane trailing a banner with a political message has been spotted flying above Norwich.

On Saturday afternoon, the plane flew over Carrow Road carrying a banner with the message “Liz Truss has no balls”.

The stunt, intended to target justice secretary and South West Norfolk MP Liz Truss, was set up by political activist group Operation Frankish in response to a blocked government bill, according to the group’s website.

The group claims that in February, MP Anna Turley put forward a Private Members Bill to toughen up animal cruelty sentences, which parliament did not debate.

The plane flew over Carrow Road as Norwich City took on Blackburn, leading to a flurry of posts on social media about the display.
