    Cancelled buses

    I saw some chat on Saturday morning about this so I tweeted ben.macpherson.msp@parliament.scot who would be willing to ask the question of Police Scotland if they have details of which bus companies were asked to cancel supporters buses.
    If this did happen then I think Police Scotland have to answer some questions on their basis for taking such actions.
    He invited me to email him but I don’t have first hand evidence .

    I walked past all the Hibs Official supporters buses on Saturday all neatly lined up in the highly organised "Sheep Pen" thinking whether or not any of these bus cancelations actually happenned at all.

    This was just after walking through 2 security checks and a random search which was about 1 in 2 fans with Polis and stewards everywhere.

    This was obviously a high profile game and it was all a wee bit oppresive and a slight inconvenience though more of a laugh watching these self important daftie stewards and tense stern Polismen pretending it was the "ISIS AGM".

    I hadnt picked up on any unofficial bus groups traveling so Police Scotland must have had real tight insider knowledge if there were and they felt the need to lean on the bus conpanies to cancel.

    It all felt like a social media myth growing arms and legs perhaps but if not then cancelling buses for football fans is a huge overeaction.

    Apparently there were screenshots on Twitter on Saturday. In among the almost 100 post thread on dotnet 1 says it was a bus coming out of Dalkeith.

    No screenshots on the thread or anything else re Dalkeith.
