REAL ale fans have been urged to enjoy their beer responsibly after reports of anti-social behaviour on trains.
The majority of drinkers on the Real Ale Trail train pub tour have been well behaved, according to British Transport Police (BTP).
But a small number have been drinking too much on the crawl of eight pubs between Stalybridge and Batley, which includes stops at taverns in Marsden, Slaithwaite and Huddersfield.
BTP and train operator First TransPennine Express say they have had reports of antisocial and threatening behaviour from drinkers using trains on the route which now attracts ale fans from across the country.
Police have said they welcome ale fans on the trail but will not tolerate bad behaviour.
Billy Vickers, police liaison officer for First TransPennine Express said: “The Real Ale Trail is a fantastic event that is enjoyed by many customers on a regular basis.
“Unfortunately a very small number of people consume too much alcohol and their behaviour becomes threatening and anti-social.
“First TransPennine Express will not tolerate such behaviour and will work with BTP, other rail operators and the local publicans to ensure that all rail customers and staff have a safe and comfortable travel experience.”
