Chris Brown has apologised for his act

A teenage football fan has spoken of his regret after he was reported to police for leaking images of Norwich City's new home kit on the internet.

Seventeen-year-old IT student Chris Brown was contacted by Norfolk Police after he published pictures of the 2012/13 strip on Twitter and online forums hours before the official launch.

The teenager, a Norwich City fan, said he was "very apologetic" for obtaining the images from the Canaries' website as it was being updated.

But he admitted he was "upset" the club had contacted police about the incident.

He told the Press Association: "The club said they would contact me first but they didn't, and that upsets me.

"There's been a lot of mentions on Twitter and people agree there has been a big over-reaction.

"I regret what I've done and I'm very apologetic. But I will always love and follow Norwich City."

A statement from Norfolk Constabulary said: "We can confirm we are making inquiries into a reported electronic security breach. A 17-year-old boy is assisting us with our inquiries."
