Football: STREAMER FUN AXED.
The Paisley club and Strathclyde Police have told the group of Motherwell fans they will not be able to throw 1000 claret-and-amber streamers at Love Street as it poses a risk to health and safety.
Alan Burrows, organiser and spokesman for Welltrustfc.net, said: "I am bitterly, bitterly disappointed. It appears every effort is being made to remove the fun from the game."
The group had collected funds for a year to reach the pounds 400 target to stage the display.
Burrows added: "We've had donations from as far a field as Dubai and America. People were travelling from Manchester just to see the display but that has all now fallen by the wayside."
A Saints spokesman said: "It is felt by police and club officials that this is a safety issue."
