Norwich City fans were reported for everything from being too rowdy to making lewd remarks aboard trains, according to the British Transport Police (BTP).

New figures from the BTP have revealed the number of reported incidents it received about City fans.

It said that NCFC supporters were responsible for 2pc of all incidents committed by Championship football club fans on the transport network.

On April 9 last year, the BTP said it received two reports about fans on a service during an away fixture.

A member of the public reported that there were around 25 intoxicated supporters on a train.

The same day, a woman text the BTP to say she had been abused by a group of fans on a service. One had then approached her, dropped his trousers, and made indecent remarks.

Canaries Trust chairman Robin Sainty said the actions were not representative of all City fans.
