A group of football supporters sang religiously offensive songs after boarding the train to Glasgow from Lancaster at the weekend.

British Transport Police (BTP) is appealing for information after the group of around 20 Glasgow Rangers supporters sang the songs on the train ahead of their team’s SPFL fixture against Alloa on Saturday November 7.

The group boarded the 9am Manchester Airport to Glasgow Central service at Lancaster at around 10.15am and sung the offensive songs during the journey until the train arrived in Glasgow at 12.30pm.

Constable Gordon Anderson, the BTP officer in charge of the enquiry, is appealing for anyone who was on the train and witnessed the behaviour of the supporters to contact BTP.

British Transport Police can be contacted on 080 40 50 40 or by texting 61016.

Information can also be given anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
