Two men, believed to be Hibernian football fans travelling to Belgium for a European cup tie, were found dead on a railway line near Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, after an open door on a train was hit by an express going the other way.

A police spokesman said fans had got 'increasingly merry' on the journey from Scotland, and officers joined the train to try to keep order. The train will be examined by police and the Health and Safety Executive, with particular attention being given to the lock on the door found open.
