HOOLIGANS have carried out a stone attack on a train in Huddersfield.

Now British Transport Police (BTP) officers have urged anyone who knows who is to blame to come forward.

The vandals struck in the Paddock area at around 3.40pm last Friday and police have today put out descriptions of the attackers.

The incident happened as the 2.20pm Liverpool Lime Street to Scarborough service passed through Paddock.

The stone damaged the passing train, smashing the window’s outer glass layer.

Investigating officer Pc John Moses said that stones were also thrown by the tracks.

He said: “This was an extremely foolish and dangerous act, which resulted in a train being damaged.

“Throwing stones at fast moving trains is an incredibly irresponsible thing to do and we have stepped up patrols in the area to try and catch those responsible.

Pc Moses is keen to speak with two Asian youths aged around 15 years old, who were wearing a blue cagoule and a grey jumper who were seen trespassing close to the line earlier.

Anyone with any information about the incident and who or may have information that could assist police enquiries should contact the BTP.
