A MAN has been bailed and another cautioned after a coach of Crystal Palace supporters was stopped by police in South Norwood on Saturday morning. A lock knife, five bin-bags of beer, cider, wine and spirits, and pyrotechnics were found when the coach taking fans to Blackburn was pulled over in South Norwood Hill at 8am. One man arrested on suspicion of possessing Class A drugs has been given a caution. A second man was arrested under the Explosives Act for possession of pyrotechnics. He was also found to have what is believed to be Class A drugs. He has since been bailed to return on a date in late July pending further enquiries. The coach did not continue on its journey and the driver has been reported under the Sporting Events Act (1985). The vehicle was stopped following a tip-off as part of Operation Arrowtip. Detective Chief Inspector Andy Barnes, head of the operation, said: "The MPS takes a proactive approach to preventing football related disorder and we will deal robustly with anyone who sees football as justification for violent behaviour and criminal activity." The police have urged anyone with information about football related disorder to contact the investigation team on 020 8246 0076 or to remain anonymous call 0800 555 111
