A football fan who admitted racially aggravated threatening behaviour at Norwich City's match with Watford last month has been sentenced.

Bronson Sims, 18, of Longwick, Princes Risborough in Buckinghamshire, was arrested in the away fans' section at Carrow Road during Norwich's 3-0 victory on 16 August.

He was conditionally discharged for nine months by Norwich magistrates.

They were asked to impose a football banning order but declined to do so.

Sims was ordered to pay £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

David Bonner, 46, of Byron Road, Wealdstone, Middlesex, also appeared in court charged with racially aggravated threatening behaviour, having been arrested in the visitors' section at the same match.

He did not enter a plea and his case was adjourned until 2 October.
