LONDON (Reuters) – Weapons including knives and knuckle dusters were found on a coach carrying Paris St Germain fans to a women’s Champions League match away to Chelsea on Thursday, British police said.

There were also “sporadic incidents of disorder” at two London railway stations, the police said, and they were called to investigate reports of fans causing criminal damage at the match venue in the suburb of Kingston.

“Those involved were identified and when they attended the Kingsmeadow stadium this evening they were stopped,” the Metropolitan Police said in a statement to the BBC.

“A coach they travelled in was searched and weapons, including knives and knuckle dusters, were recovered along with Class A drugs.”

One man was arrested for drug possession and the rest escorted from the area.

Chelsea won the quarter-final first-leg match 2-0.
