Nobody was injured and the train was able to complete the journey, but officers asked passengers on the train to contact them if they witnessed the stones being thrown.

Constable Ryan Tierney said: “Throwing any object at trains is a really stupid thing to do and I am appealing for anyone who has information regarding those involved to come forward.”
