The pair were being disruptive on board the service at around 6.30pm on November 11, playing tag up and down the carriage.

Other passengers asked the couple to settle down, but they became abusive, attempting to provoke a fight before racially abusing an Asian couple, asking them to bring them “fried rice” in an offensive accent.

They were eventually removed from the train at Lancaster station.

Officers believe the man and woman shown in this CCTV image may have information which could help them investigate.
