Five men wanted in connection with an alleged homophobic incident on a train have been identified, police have confirmed.

British Transport Police issued an appeal in December following the events, involving men wearing Ipswich Town shirts, which took place in October.

The men were travelling on a train from Plymouth to Paddington, in London, on October 31 - the day after the Tractor Boys lost 2-1 to Plymouth Argyle - when it was reported they were singing homophobic chants and making other passengers feel uncomfortable.
