AN INVESTIGATION has been launched following a fight onboard a train at Elsecar station last month.

The incident took place on Saturday, November 11, on the 7.35pm service from Sheffield to Huddersfield.

A spokesperson for the British Transport Police said: “It was reported that around 8pm, just as the train was coming into Elsecar station in Barnsley, two men started shouting derogatory comments towards a woman who was with a group of people.

“The woman, accompanied by another woman, confronted the men and the argument became physical with pushing and grabbing taking place.

“As the train stopped and the doors opened a guard at the station intervened and broke up the altercation.

“The men continued to shout at the woman and it was reported she assaulted one of them.

“The two women removed themselves from the situation, but the two men, still onboard the train, started to argue with a man from the same group and the argument once again turned physical with the men assaulting each other.”

Police are now asking for the public’s help to identify the individuals in the CCTV images.

Anyone with information is asked to contact BTP by texting 61016, or by calling 0800 40 50 40, quoting reference 2300134662.
