Crash witness: "We saw debris fly past the window"

A woman living near a level crossing in Grimsby, where two men were killed when a train hit a car last night, has described the moments after the crash. Lyndsey Downes, who lives near the scene of the accident, dialled the emergency services after she and her husband heard "an extremely loud bang".

We saw some sort of debris flying past the window and the train screeching to a halt. We opened the door to go outside to see what it was and one of my neighbours shouted to ring 999, which I did.
