Can you help us identify these men? 

Officers from British Transport Police are looking to identify them in connection to a disorderly incident including racial abuse on board a train between Leeds and Sheffield. 

The incident happened between 4.50pm and 5.05pm on 21 February on board a Cross Country Trains service.  

Passengers on board the train reported that a group of men, believed to be Leeds United fans, were being anti-social, chanting football songs loudly. The group’s behaviour worsened during the journey when some of the group became racially abusive. 

A number of passengers were offended by their language. 

Four images are today being released in relation to this investigation. Officers believe these men may have information which could help the investigation.  

If you know who they are, contact BTP by sending a text to 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 461 of 21/02/2018. Alternatively, ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
