Two people have been arrested over alleged offences at East End Park when the Pars played at home against Rangers.

A 16 year-old male from the Glasgow area was taken into custody for possession of a pyrotechnic device following an incident during the game when a similar device was set off in the crowd. He was due to appear at Dunfermline Sheriff Court on Monday, 13 February.

A 41-year-old male from the Glasgow area was arrested after the game in respect of an offence pertaining to a football banning order and was also due to appear at Dunfermline Sheriff Court on 13 February.

Match Commander Chief Inspector Graeme Kinmond said: “These offences were isolated matters however the potential risk posed by the pyrotechnic device is considerable and I would urge supporters not to take them into grounds. Overall the behaviour by both sets of supporters was very good and I would like to thank them for their conduct before, during and after the game.”
