Detectives from British Transport Police are appealing for witnesses after a large fight and assault took place at Margate railway station.

The brawl broke out on platforms at the station between a group of youths and a group of men on Wednesday, June 24 at around 9pm. One teenager was suffered a head injury after being hit with a bottle and a 16-year-old youth from Ramsgate was arrested at the scene.

Several members of the group also trespassed, by crossing the tracks on to another platform.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or who may have seen the groups together beforehand, is asked to contact BTP by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 537 of 24/06/20.

Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.


  1. ThugYobs, why bother with them, they are proving to be a complete waste of time.
    They take no notice of Law & Order. Best thing would be to bring back Conscription.
    Straight in the Army, Navy, air Force for 5 years after school has finished.
    They might appreciate life a lot more, after this.
    My thoughts only….

  2. Everyone seems to do just about what they like these days without proper law and order being seen to take place. They all stick two fingers up as they know nothing will be done. This has been the way for several generations now so parents can be just as bad as the thugs and criminals they bring up.
    Discipline, police that are visable and can take a common sense approach to the incident and courts that act accordingly is what is needed. The eroded and fractured policing system which Thatcher brought in ruined this country but the tories just don’t know any better. If you want respect then you have to show respect. Unfortunately, that is a word that has been lost on much of the population.
