A man from Norwich is among four men charged after the north London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham yesterday.

A string of arrests were made following the match at the Emirates Stadium, which saw a number of incidents including a banana skin being thrown at Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Today the Metropolitan Police said four men had been charged.

Paul Wright, 41, of Talbot Place, Bexley, was charged with a public order offence and released on bail to appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on New Year's Eve.

Another three men were charged with throwing a missile on to a football pitch in separate incidents.

Averof Panteli, 57, of Borrowdale Drive, Norwich; Charlie Watts, 26, of Goldring Court, St Albans; and Jason Gannon, 36, of Gargery Close, Gravesend, Kent, were bailed to appear at the same court on Tuesday December 18.

The Met could not say who was accused of throwing the banana skin.
