Police have release CCTV images of six Wrexham football fans in connection with an incident that left a woman on a train feeling "offended" and "disgusted". British Transport Police (BTP) are investigating after a group of drunk and rowdy football fans caused disruption on a train journey between Hebden Bridge and Halifax on 28 December 2015.
Police wish to speak to those seen in the CCTV stills (pictured right) following reports a group of men were being abusive on board the train, with one climbing on to the overhead luggage rack and another throwing his shoes around the carriage, narrowly missing other passengers. A 33-year-old woman from Halifax who boarded the train at Hebden Bridge complained to the police after a group of around 10-12 football fans were allegedly singing sexist and offensive songs.
The Wrexham fans were travelling to watch the Conference league match against FC Halifax later that day, which they eventually lost 2-0. PC Jo Kellert from BTP said: "We recently appealed for witnesses to this incident to come forward. We have now managed to isolate CCTV images from the train of six people we would like to speak to as part of our investigation. If you recognise any of them please get in touch.
"This was completely unacceptable behaviour from the group, which must have been uncomfortable and offensive for the woman who reported this incident to us, and other passengers in the carriage. We are committed to stamping out football-related anti-social behaviour on the rail network and are hoping that people will come forward to help us identify the individuals concerned."
