A group of yobs on bicycles verbally abused a couple in their twenties at Littleborough train station on Saturday (30 December).

The teenagers, aged around 11-15, began verbally abusing the couple in an unprovoked tirade at approximately 3pm.

Officers from British Transport Police are currently investigating the report of threatening anti-social abuse.

A British Transport Police spokesman said: “Officers are currently conducting a number of enquiries as part of their investigation. Anyone who was in the area at the time and saw what happened is asked to contact BTP by sending a text to 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 322 of 30/12/2017.”

He added: “Anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated on the rail network and officers work hard to prevent incidents from occurring.”

If you ever witness or experience anti-social behaviour, please report it by texting BTP on 61016.
