Norwich City is investigating claims that some of its fans made racist chants during Sunday's match at Wolves.

The club said it had been made aware of the incident by some of its own supporters and was in the process of "gathering information".

Norwich lost the match, their first since being relegated from the Premier League, 1-0.

West Midlands Police said it was aware of the allegations and has asked witnesses to come forward.

'Not tolerated'

Insp Howard Lewis-Jones said: "We have not received any official complaints in relation to the match yesterday.

"However we are aware of these allegations and that officials at Wolves and Norwich are investigating.

"Racism on the terraces will not be tolerated and we take every report extremely seriously."

Norwich City said any fan found to have made racist chants could face a lifetime ban from the club.

In 2011, a supporter was banned for life from Carrow Road for posting a racist remark on Twitter about James Vaughan.

Last year the moderator of an unofficial fans' page on Facebook apologised for posting a racist comment about Chris Hughton, who was the team's manager at the time.
