Appeal after 'sectarian' chanting on train

Police are searching for 20 "rowdy" football fans who subjected fellow rail passengers to sectarian chanting between Dundee and Stirling.

The group boarded the train at about 19:00 on Sunday, after Celtic's 1-0 victory over Dundee United.

British Transport Police said the football supporters had also jumped on seats and banged windows while sitting in a rear carriage.

The train involved was the 15:27 service from Inverness to Glasgow.

PC Lorraine Lowe, who is in charge of the inquiry, said: "Passengers and rail staff have the right to travel without the fear of encountering anti-social behaviour of this kind.

"I am anxious to speak with anyone who travelled on this train and has information regarding the identity of those involved."
