A former Norwich City, Cambridge United and Peterborough United youth coach arrested on suspicion of indecency with children and indecent assault has been released on bail.

Michael Sean Carson, 74, also known as Kit, was detained in Cambridge on Friday as part of an investigation into allegations of abuse in football.

He spent 10 years at Norwich City and left the club in 1993 to join Peterborough United. He was later appointed Cambridge United’s head of youth development in 2001.

During his time at Norwich in the 1980s and 1990s, Mr Carson brought through influential youngsters including Ruel Fox and Chris Sutton.

Police said a man in his 70s arrested on Friday was bailed until March 6.
