At time of going to press, it emerged that a group called Stop Nazi Britain First intended to gather at the station at 7pm.

As we reported last week, right-wing group Britain First intends to meet there at the same time.

The group hit headlines last year after visiting mosques, including one in Cumbernauld, amidst claims that local Muslims were harassed.

A SBF spokesman said: “We are calling for anti-racists to assemble here.”

Both British Transport Police and Scotrail have stressed that meetings for political purposes are banned in station premises.
