Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a Norwich City shirt flying high above a Norfolk village church

The Canaries’ colours are flying high above one Norfolk village in tribute to the team’s Premier League victory.
But the ‘flag’ that has been hoisted to the top of St Catherine’s Church in Ludham is not an average standard - it is instead one of Rodney Wright’s beloved NCFC shirts.
Mr Wright, who owns the village butchers, has been supporting Norwich since he was a teenager and while he was on his way back from Wembley with three friends, his spare shirt was being hoisted into the air by church warden Ken Grapes.
The 62-year-old said: “Ken asked me if the boys win would it be alright if we put your shirt up on the flag pole and that’s what happened.”
Mr Wright said it was nice to see the yellow and green shirt fluttering in the breeze when he arrived home from London, and he has now decked out his shop in Canary colours to mark the team’s triumphant win.
