A woman was racially abused by a group of men on board a train as it headed through Fife.
British Transport Police is appealing for information about a group of men who acted in a rowdy manner and also used racially offensive language towards another passenger on the Edinburgh to Dundee on Saturday evening.
The group of six men are reported to have been shouting, swearing and banging the tables on the 10.08pm Edinburgh Waverley to Dundee service and a woman who asked them to be quiet during the journey was racially abused.
The men then got off the train when it arrived in Kirkcaldy.
One of the men is described as being about 6ft, medium build, aged in his late teens or 20s with short light brown hair. He was wearing a white t-shirt, green trousers and white training shoes.
Another man is described as about 6ft, medium build and aged about 30. He had dark, but balding, hair and was wearing a shirt.
There are no descriptions of the other men available.
CCTV footage from the train and stations will be reviewed in an attempt to identify those responsible.
Meanwhile, Constable Jan Langer, the BTP officer in charge of the enquiry, is appealing for anyone who was on the train and has information which can help the investigation to contact BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or by texting 61016.
Information can also be given to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
