The young travelers were able to board the next train after speaking to the police, without further incident. The exact circumstances of the incident are still very unclear. When the local police arrived, they did not have to intervene, she explains. “We inquired about the arrival time of the next train and communicated it to the young passengers”, continued Dirk Van de Sande, spokesman for the police. “They were then also able to leave.”
For her part, the train attendant said she would file a complaint with the railway police.
The youngsters were on their way back from leisure park De Nekker, where various riots and other incidents have taken place in recent days. The leisure area has taken measures accordingly, such as the mandatory sale of online tickets with identification, a limit of 300 visitors and a restriction on large groups.
