West Ham’s fans had to have an armed police escort into the war shattered city of Magdeburg. High ranking police officials worried in case any West Germans had hidden in one of the five West Ham coaches, they followed each of the coaches down the autobahn and into the city.

Every car, lorry and coach was checked and a traffic jam began building up as police officials, armed with Lugar pistols searched luggage racks, seats and boots for any defecting Germans.

The fans were delayed for nearly 4 hours at the East-West German frontier while heavily armed German police checked and counter checked passports.
