A spokesperson for British Transport Police (BTP) said: We are investigating after four people were injured following a disturbance on the 6.46pm Manchester Piccadilly to Stoke train on Saturday, February 27. British Transport Police were called to Macclesfield Railway Station at 7.24pm. Three people were taken to hospital and treated for injuries including a broken leg and a broken jaw, they have now been discharged.
We are reviewing CCTV from the service and speaking to witnesses.
A spokesperson from Northern Rail said two trains had to be cancelled as a result of the incident.
Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to contact BTP on 0800 405040 or text 61016 quoting ref 538 of 27/2.
Fortunately, that service was being operated by one of the few Northern trains with CCTV. It doesn't sound like it was football related violence unless it related to the Macclesfield vs Wrexham game being played that day, neither Manchester team were playing at home and Stoke were away at Aston Villa.
