Eight men are being hunted by transport police after their rowdy behaviour upset other passengers on a train.

The incident took place on the service between Edinburgh and Tweedbank, which left Waverley at 7.12pm on May 22.

Other passengers reported the group to the police, claiming they had been shouting, swearing and abusing other passengers.

Constable Morton Cowie of the British Transport Police is now calling for anyone who can help identify the men on the Borders Railway service to come forward.

In a statement, British Transport Police said: “ Officers are appealing for witnesses after a group of around eight men acted in a disorderly manner on a train travelling between Edinburgh Waverley and Tweedbank on Sunday, May 22.

“They are reported to have been shouting, swearing and making abusive comments on the 19.12 service between the two stations – prompting a number of complaints by other passengers.”
