Police say men who were chanting “songs of a sectarian nature” on an Edinburgh to Glasgow train last Sunday (March 11) were committing a hate crime.

The alleged incident happened between the two cities between 9am and 9.44am, and the train was met by police at Glasgow Queen Street station.

They took the details of one man in connection with the alleged offence, and are now appealing for witnesses to get in touch “to understand what happened and who was responsible”.

At Glasgow Queen Street the train was met by BTP officers and they spoke and took the details of a man in connection.
