Police are appealing for information after a group of St Mirren fans sang offensive songs on a train.

Ten supporters were on a train travelling to Glasgow, after their team’s SPFL match on Saturday 17th October 2015.

British Transport Police (BTP) described the songs as ‘religiously offensive and illicit songs’.

BTP said: “Around 6.00pm, the group of around 10 men then boarded the 17.47 Edinburgh Waverley to Glasgow Central service and are reported to have continued to chant and sing religiously offensive and illicit songs throughout the journey.

“As a result of their behaviour train services were delayed.

“CCTV from on the train and stations will be reviewed. Meantime, Constable Christopher Sutherland, the BTP officer in charge of the enquiry, is appealing for anyone who was on the busy service to get in touch with information which can assist enquiries.”

BTP can be contacted by calling 0800 40 50 40 or by texting 61016. Information can also be given to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 40 50 40.
