FOOTBALL fans were arrested on a coach in South Norwood on Saturday morning, which was taking Crystal Palace supporters to today's match against Blackburn.
Officers from Operation Arrowtip stopped the coach at around 8am in South Norwood Hill and arrested one man on suspicion of possessing Class A drugs.
A second man was arrested under the Explosives Act for possession of pyrotechnics and was also believed to be in possession of Class A drugs.

Both men were taken to a south London police station, where they remain in custody.

A lock knife was seized, together with five bin-bags of beer, cider, wine and spirits.

The driver of the coach, which did not continue on its journey, has been reported under the Sporting Events Act (1985).

Metropolitan Police officers working on Operation Arrowtip tackle individuals and groups who commit football related criminality and disorder.

Detective Chief Inspector Andy Barnes, head of Operation Arrowtip, said: "We can only stamp out football disorder and criminality by working together with the clubs, the Football Association and the fans themselves.

"We have to ensure that all groups in society can go and watch football without the fear of violence or abuse."
 
Anyone with information about football related disorder should call the investigation team on 020 8246 0076, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
