Harry Abrey, of Sutton Coldfield in the West Midlands, is charged with going onto the playing field without lawful authority on March 6.

A man ran onto the pitch during Tuesday's Championship game and pulled down his trousers before being caught by stewards.

Police said later arrested a man who was sat in the away stand.

Abrey has been bailed and is due to appear at Norwich Magistrates' Court on March 27, 2018.
