Appeal after windows smashed on Glasgow to Edinburgh train

Youths who smashed windows on a Glasgow to Edinburgh train are being sought by British Transport Police (BTP).

The 06:00 Queen Street to Waverley service was targeted as it passed an embankment between Croy and Dullatur at about 06:15 on 9 April.

The next train through the location was also struck, but not damaged.

BTP said a group of youths - one of whom was described as wearing a red hooded top - were seen throwing stones at the trains.

Constable Gary Ketterer said: "Throwing anything at a train is not only really stupid it is extremely dangerous.

"Fortunately no-one was injured but the consequences could have been much worse.

"I am appealing for anyone who saw the youths in the area at such an early time to get in touch as soon as possible."

The driver's window and a passenger's window were smashed in the first attack.
