Runaway car hit by train

Police are investigating how a runaway car ended up on rail tracks before being hit by a train and shoved along the line in Bingley.

The red Vauxhall Corsa was parked on a residential street before it rolled down the road and smashed through a wooden fence on to the track.

It was hit by the Leeds to Skipton train on Monday at 8.45pm and shunted along the track for about 125 metres before stopping near the bridge on Leonard Street.

No-one was in the car, which belonged to somebody visiting a friend in Healey Avenue.
