Police are appealing for information after a teenager was punched in the face on a train in Glasgow.

The attack took place on 6 February between Queen Street station and Shettleston.

British Transport Police said the 19-year-old victim had been approached at about 17:40 by another man who seemed intent on starting a fight.

The man, who was in his early 20s, punched him in the face then left the train at Shettleston Station.

The victim was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary to be treated for facial injuries.

The attacker was described as being at least 6ft tall, with fair hair. He was wearing a grey top and grey trousers.

Police are analysing the surveillance camera recordings from the stations and the train itself.
