We are appealing for information after an affray on board a Northern service between Lincoln and Sheffield.

The incident took place around 9.50pm on Saturday 27 January.

A fight between two large groups is believed to have started on board the train which then spilled out onto the platform at Gainsborough Lea Road station.

It is believed some 20 individuals were involved in the fight.

Staff were quickly on hand to intervene and separate the two groups.

Officers would like to speak to anyone who saw the incident, or thinks they may have information which could help. They are asked to please contact BTP by calling 0800 40 50 40 or texting 61016, with reference 682 of 27 January.
