Police investigating a homophobic incident on a train have shared images of men they want to speak to, some of whom appeared to be wearing Ipswich Town shirts at the time.

Officers said a group of football supporters were travelling on the 6.15pm service from Plymouth to Paddington on Sunday, October 31 - the day after Ipswich Town lost to Plymouth Argyle at Home Park 2-1 - when the incident happened.

It was reported that the group were singing homophobic chants, making other passengers feel uncomfortable, a British Transport Police spokesman said.
