A small group of In­ver­ness Cale­do­nian This­tle foot­ball fans have been crit­i­cised by the club for their be­hav­iour at Satur­day’s away game at Brechin City.

Chair­man Graham Rae said the sup­port­ers had “dis­graced the club by be­hav­ing in a threat­en­ing, abu­sive and dis­re­spect­ful man­ner”. Six fans were told by po­lice to leave Brechin’s ground and an In­ver­ness sup­port­ers’ bus was dam­aged. The club is try­ing to iden­tify those in­volved. The River Clyde dropped to its low­est point for more than 60 years af­ter a vi­tal weir failed, spark­ing fears of its banks col­laps­ing.

A res­cue worker said it was the low­est he had seen in 65
