BRITISH Transport Police (BTP) is appealing for information on an alleged assault on a train service between Ayrshire and Glasgow.

It comes after a video has circulated on social media showing the alleged incident.

The video has been viewed more than 250,000 times on Twitter, and appears to show a man being struck after an altercation with a group of younger men.

The BTP says it is aware of the social media post circulating and that this related to a report of an assault "on board a train to Glasgow" earlier this month.

It is understood that the train was travelling between the city and Ayrshire.

A BTP spokesperson said: “Officers are aware of a video on social media which relates to a report of an assault on board a train to Glasgow on June 1.

"Anyone with information can contact BTP by texting 61016 quoting reference 670 of June 1, 2023.”
