A suspected drone pilot from the Nottingham area has been arrested after a device was flown over a packed football stadium, police have said.
The 41-year-old man was held in the car park of an Asda supermarket near Manchester City's Etihad Stadium after reports of a drone flying over a stand during Saturday's match against Tottenham Hotspur.
The man was arrested on suspicion of breaching the air navigation order and bailed for two months while police make further inquiries.
Greater Manchester Police released a photograph of the small white drone. It was not clear what it was used for.
Operating rules for drones - also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) - state that they must never be flown beyond the normal, unaided line of sight of their operator.
UAVs fitted with cameras must always be flown at least 50 metres away from a person, vehicle, building or structure.
They must not be flown within 150 metres of a congested area or large group of people, such as a sporting event or concert.
Magistrates can fine culprits up to £5,000.
Derby have signed England Under-21 international goalkeeper Jack Butland on a one-month loan deal from Stoke.
Rams head coach Steve McClaren has made a move for Butland following an injury to first-choice keeper Lee Grant, who will be out for between four and six weeks after sustaining an ankle problem during Saturday's 3-0 win at Reading.
The 21-year-old is set to make his debut for Derby in their Sky Bet Championship fixture against Blackpool at Bloomfield Road on Tuesday night.
"We're extremely pleased to welcome Jack Butland to Derby County and I would like to extend our thanks to Stoke City for agreeing to let him join us on loan," McClaren told his club's official website.
"Jack is a promising young goalkeeper and after Lee Grant picked up an injury on Saturday, as a management team, we quickly set about identifying someone to come into the group.
"We know a lot about Jack and he is someone who Eric Steele (Derby's goalkeeping coach) rates very highly."
Butland is behind Asmir Begovic and Thomas Sorensen in the pecking order at Stoke and City boss Mark Hughes has been keen to get him out on loan.
The England Under-21 captain will now get some valuable minutes under his belt in the second tier - as he has done during the last two seasons at Birmingham, Barnsley and more recently Leeds.
Butland joined Stoke from Birmingham in January 2013 for a fee of just over £3 million. He has started three Premier League matches for the Potters.

A mother who suffered pre and post natal depression is backing a campaign to make sure all women suffering from maternal mental health problems should receive the care they need.
Claire Crane, who is originally from Derby, spent four months in a mother and baby psychiatric unit to treat her postnatal depression. But the Maternal Mental Health Alliance says many women do not receive the right treatment because of a postcode lottery and lack of investment.
Claire says her treatment saved her life.
