Police ask Newcastle and Carlisle FC fans to behave

Newcastle and Carlisle football fans are being warned that drunken behaviour will not be tolerated on trains to Saturday's friendly fixture.

British Transport Police has banned alcohol on all trains between the two cities and said drunken fans would not be allowed on board.

Officers will also accompany fans on board all trains to and from the city to keep order.

Fans being rowdy will also be removed from trains, police said.

Pc Wayne Mitchell, of the Transport Police, said: "We know from experience that some fans can get caught up in the excitement of the day and this, combined with alcohol, can result in some less than desirable behaviour.

"We're asking fans to show some consideration for others on board the trains and keep their language and behaviour clean."
