Police investigating the assault of a 20-year-old woman on a train have released CCTV images of two men they want to trace.

The incident, on the 20:42 Aberdeen to Glasgow service on 15 July, also involved "abusive and racially offensive behaviour", police said.

The train was travelling between Aberdeen and Perth when the attack took place.

British Transport Police have appealed for witnesses to contact them.

The first man was in his mid-20s, about 5ft 10in tall, of slim build, and had tattoos on his hands. He was wearing a black tracksuit with white stripes on the sleeves and a large green and white logo on the front, with the words Jack & Jones. He was also wearing dark trainers.

The second man was of a similar height and age, of stocky build and had dark hair. He was wearing "work-style" trousers and a black hooded top with orange branding.

Det Con David McAllister said: "The disgusting behaviour was completely unwarranted and appalled people.

"The train also stopped at Stonehaven, Montrose, Arbroath and Dundee and I am appealing for anyone who witnessed the incidents to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or by texting 61016."
