Everton hooligans on rampage at Nuneaton railway station

Police were called when a group of football hooligans went on the rampage at Nuneaton train station.

Bottles were thrown onto the track and there were reports of men running across the rails.

The incident was at around 7.40pm last Saturday and it is believed that those responsible were Everton fans, who had earlier been watching their team in action at Leicester and had stopped off at Nuneaton to drink in pubs near to the station, on their way back to Liverpool.
Several police cars were sent to the station at around 7.40pm and two people suffered minor injuries.

It is understood that a joint investigation is now underway with the local force and British Transport Police (BTP).

A BTP spokesman said: “Officers from BTP and Warwickshire Police attended Nuneaton railway station on Saturday, 16 August, after a report at 7.42pm of disorder involving a large group of men at the station.

“Details of a number of men were taken and they will be spoken to by BTP officers in relation to the incident.

“Meanwhile, enquiries, including reviewing CCTV footage and speaking to witnesses, are ongoing to establish the full facts.”
