Norwich City soccer fans are planning to complain about the behaviour of opposing team supporters who, they claim, threw missiles and performed Nazi salutes during the Canaries'

2-1 away defeat to Hull City.

Supporters on message boards claim they had to endure unacceptable abuse during Saturday's game.

Many say the behaviour was far more sinister than the rivalry normally experienced.

One fan wrote: "Just got back from the game wishing I had never gone. I have never come back from a football match shaking with anger, had the day ruined by 'fans' or felt as vulnerable as I did today. Most disgustingly, three Hull followers performed a Nazi salute in our direction. A lot of fans were upset.

"I demanded their removal and was told to calm down or I'd be ejected. Eventually those three were removed, kicking and screaming, for hurling abuse and a coin, I think."
