British Transport Police officers have released still images taken from CCTV after a man allegedly threatened to stab a guard on a train between Flint and Shotton.

The incident happened at around 2.50pm on Monday 11 February.

The suspect is reported to have boarded the train at Rhyl. He then began acting aggressively towards the guard after an issue with his ticket.

A police spokesperson said:
