Train passengers looked on in horror as a brawl broke out apparently between two groups of rival football fans.

An investigation is now underway after the incident on the platform at Grahamston Railway Station.

The incident occurred shortly before 7pm on Saturday and two hours after the match at Westfield between Falkirk and Hibs which the Edinburgh team won 2-1.

Video and images shot by train passengers have been shared on social media.

A spokeswoman for British Transport Police said: “We were called to football-related disorder at Falkirk Grahamston station at 6.50pm on Saturday – which is believed to have involved supporters from Hibernian Football Club and Falkirk football club.

“We are aware of video and images of the disorder being shared on social media sites.
