This fixture is at a designated sports ground and is a designated sporting event. Therefore ALL the offences in relation to S20 Criminal Law (Consolidation)(Scotland) Act 1995 are relevant in respect of alcohol on buses, controlled containers, possession of alcohol and being drunk. And buses may be subject to search before, during and after the match, and that Police will be present to support stewards and report offences.
Can you pass this on to the supporters’ clubs and Liddell? There’s a responsibility on the individual, the bus driver and the bus operator when it comes to drinking on the way to or from a designated sporting event. Hopefully this will keep them right.
