Warning over anti-social behaviour on Aberystwyth train

Police are warning rail passengers to behave after reports of anti-social behaviour on a Saturday night service.

British Transport Police said revellers travelling between Newtown, Powys, and Aberystwyth often swore and played loud music, blighting people's journeys.

Police have used uniformed and plain clothed officers on the service and on platforms to try and stop the problem.

Sgt Karl Anderson of British Transport Police said these patrols would continue.

"We aren't out to spoil your party," he added.

"We want everyone to enjoy themselves but people must also respect other passengers and the rail staff who have a right to go about their duties without intimidation or harassment."

Drunk and disorderly

Two men were arrested for anti-social behaviour and possession of drugs on a service between Newtown and Aberystwyth on 30 July.

British Transport Police said two 25-year-old men from Newtown were expected to appear at Welshpool Magistrates' Court on 23 August.

A 24-year-old woman on the same train was cautioned for being drunk and disorderly and for being in possession of a class B drug.
