An innocent woman has been punched in the face after being caught up in a fight on a train to Pengam.

Detectives are investigating the assault which happened on a service from Cardiff Central.

A group of five or six men got on the train, at either Caerphilly or Llanbradach, and started to fight among themselves.

The woman tried to move to a different seat, but inadvertently ended up being hit in the face.

She was left with minor cuts and bruises and broken glasses between 10.40pm and 11.45pm on 9th November.

The British Transport Police say all of the men were in their late twenties.
