The band have enjoyed huge success
The three male members of teen pop band S Club 7 have been cautioned for possessing cannabis.

Bradley McIntosh, 18, Paul Cattermole, 24, and Jon Lee, 19, were found carrying the drug in London's West End.

The trio were arrested and formally cautioned on Tuesday after passing officers smelled the drugs, according to the Sun newspaper.

A Scotland Yard spokesman told BBC News Online that three men aged 18, 24 and 19 were arrested for possession of a small amount of cannabis.

"Arrests were made in the Covent Garden area at 1630 GMT yestersday [Tuesday]."

The three were taken to Charing Cross police station where they received a formal caution and were released. No further action will be taken.

'Shocked'

The Metropolitan Police have said all three had admitted the offence.

S Club 7's girl members - Rachel Stevens, 21, Tina Barratt, 24, Hannah Spearitt, 19, and Jo O'Meara, 24 - were said by the paper to be "shocked" by the arrests.

The band were launched on a BBC children's TV programme, and a string of hits, including Reach and Never Had A Dream Come True, followed.

The band's fun, clean-cut image has endeared them to thousands of pre-teen fans.
