Extra police for Aberdeen and Hibernian trains

Hibernian travel to Aberdeen to face the Dons at Pittodrie

Extra police officers have been called in to patrol trains and stations between Edinburgh and Aberdeen this weekend as Hibernian play at Pittodrie.

They want to ensure violence does not break out on Saturday. It follows an incident earlier this year when a Dons fan ended up on fire on a train.

British Transport Police are banning the sale and consumption of alcohol on trains to Edinburgh after the game.

A man was charged with culpable and reckless conduct after the fire case.
