Appeal over sectarian singing on Glasgow to Carlisle train

Police are appealing for information in a bid to trace a group of football fans who chanted sectarian songs on a train.

The incident took place on the 19:12 Glasgow to Carlisle service on Saturday.

PC Alistair Brewer, of the British Transport Police, said the train was busy, with a lot of passengers returning from the Rangers v St Mirren match at Ibrox.

He said the singing began as the train left Kilmarnock station.

PC Brewer said many of the other passengers were travelling with young children.

"What these passengers had to endure is totally unacceptable," he said. "I'd ask for anyone who witnessed this unpleasant behaviour to contact BTP."
