FOOTBALL yobs who caused a disturbance on a train have been issued fixed penalty notices.

The four men - three aged 50, 41 and 22 from the Wrexham area and a 34-year-old from Telford were arrested at Rhyl train station in April following a confrontation between football supporters.

The disturbance, which happened at about 6.45pm, took place on a Holyhead to Shrewsbury service, which was stationary at Rhyl station at the time.

All four men were arrested at the station and later interviewed under caution by British Transport Police (BTP) officers.

They were then released on police bail, pending further enquiries, and have subsequently been issued with penalty notices for disorder.

At the time of the incident, BTP issued a witness appeal through local media.

Detective Sergeant Guy Ellis, of British Transport Police, said: “I would like to thank the local media for their assistance in publishing this appeal, as well as the members of public who came forward with important information.”

Appealing for witnesses at the time, inspector Mark Jones, of BTP, said the incident created an “intimidating atmosphere” for other passengers and people on the platform at the station.
