Superintendent Mark Cleland said: “While we appreciate and respect the right to peaceful protest, when this compromises the safety of the public and the protesters themselves, any offenders will attract the full investigative resources of BTP.
"Those involved in this afternoon’s incident will be subject to intense investigation with a view to arrest and prosecution.
“All protesters at Manchester Piccadilly have now been safely moved from the tracks and the station has reopened.
“We will  continue to maintain a police presence at this station and at other stations across the rail network.”
