Fans warned not to act like drunken yobs

By Ryan Hooper

Spanish police have told football fans to "behave like tourists", not drunken yobs, as thousands of Liverpool and Tottenham supporters descend on Madrid for the Champions League final.

Officials are deploying unprecedented security measures for the game, which has been declared a high-risk match.

Officers from England have also been drafted in to help enforce a "robust" approach to disorder.

More than 4,700 security personnel will be involved in the operation, including 1,300 Spanish tourism police.

Despite the fears over violence, fans have so far been well-behaved.
