Football fans cause Dundee-bound train upset

A group of football supporters who punched windows and shouted racist abuse on board a Dundee-bound train is being sought by police.

The group boarded the service from Perth on Sunday, 29 December at about 18:45, following the St Johnstone v Dundee United SPFL match.

British Transport Police said their behaviour left other passengers, including children, "alarmed".

They have urged anyone with information about the group to contact them.

According to officers, the fans shouted racist remarks, jumped up and down in the carriage and punched windows and the ceiling during the journey north.

Det Con David McAllister said: "This service was busy at the time and I am appealing for anyone who witnessed the disorder and can provide information which may help identify those responsible to contact me."
