The police are re-appealing for help identifying two men believed to hold vital information about a fight which broke out onboard a train travelling from Exmouth to Exeter

British Transport Police have released these CCTV images of the two men they believe can help the investigation.

PC Daren Burns, investigating officer, said a fight broke out on the train between Topsham and Digby and Sowton railway stations at around midnight on Saturday December 10, 2011.

“As the train approached Topsham station, a group of around 20 people on board, who were in drink, became rowdy and began fighting among themselves,” said PC Burns.

“Train staff halted the service at Topsham but the altercation flared up again when the train resumed its journey.

“The train was extremely busy at the time and other passengers and rail staff on board the train feared for their safety during the incident.

“Officers met the train at Digby and Sowton station and three men were removed from the train and their details taken.

“I believe the men in these photographs will be able to assist the investigation so I would now ask anyone who knows their identity to contact British Transport Police.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. In all calls, please quote incident reference B7/WWA of 23/02/2012.
