Drunken behaviour on train

FAMILIES were subjected to raucous, drunken behaviour on a train to West Cumbria, a court heard.

Wayne Michael Rayson, 22, of Greendykes, Egremont, appeared before Carlisle magistrates in connection with an incident on the train after Carlisle’s popular fire show.

Rayson pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly on the train on November 2 and to possessing a Class A drug – cocaine – on the same night.

Magistrates were told that police were on duty at Carlisle Citadel railway station after the fireworks spectacular.

Officers had watched as a large group – including Rayson – boarded the Carlisle to Whitehaven train and began shouting, banging on the tables and singing loudly to the annoyance of other passengers. They were also using abusive language, despite the presence of families with young children, the court was told.

Police officers asked Rayson to go to another carriage, which he did, before returning to shout abuse towards the officers, shouting that he “wanted a drink”.

Extra officers were called to assist and, when the train stopped at Dalston station, he was taken off and arrested.

When searched, a quantity of cocaine was also found on him.

Magistrates fined Rayson £350 for possession of the drug, £50 for being drunk and disorderly and ordered him to pay court costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £25. The drugs were ordered to be forfeited and destroyed.
