Translink made the announcement on Twitter saying: “Due to disruptive passengers the 11:55 #Bangor to #Portadown was terminated at Lisburn. It will no longer call at Moira, Lurgan and Portadown. Sorry for any inconvenience.”
Also a result the 13:45 Portadown to Bangor train service was also cancelled.
A Translink spokesperson told Belfast Live: “A passenger on board the 11.55am Bangor to Portadown train became aggressive towards other passengers and towards the conductor when he intervened.
