Armed police were called to a large disturbance at Weymouth Train Station last night.

It involved a group of 30 young men and women who had been drinking.

Some of the group had also been involved in fights.

A spokesperson for Weymouth & Portland Police said:

"Following careful negotiations with the train staff, two officers travelled with the youths out of town, leaving one young man behind who was detained for drunk and disorderly and trespass on a railway.

"Nobody was injured and thanks to some quick decisions between agencies, the trains were soon up and running as normal."

The disturbance caused significant delays for passengers.
