Main article content
Update in relation to incident at Edinburgh Waverley Station.
Assistant Chief Constable Sean O’Callaghan said:
“Two separate offences were reported to British Transport Police in relation to an incident at Edinburgh Waverley Station on Saturday 4 November.
“The first incident was reported to us of a racially aggravated public order offence, which is not linked to the protest at the station. Detectives have arrested a 41-year-old man from Airdrie, North Lanarkshire in connection with this incident. He is currently in police custody.
“The second is a reported assault on a poppy stall seller whilst a demonstration was taking place at the station. Detectives have extensively monitored CCTV and spoken with key identified witnesses. There is insufficient evidence to take the investigation further at this time.
“We have no reason to believe that poppy sellers are at any risk or being intentionally targeted.”
Anyone with information in relation to either of these reported incidents is urged to contact us as soon as possible. Text 61016 or via our Railway Guardian App.
