A man has been taken to hospital after a Virgin Trains train from London Euston hit the buffers at a railway station. The collision happened just after midday at Chester station. Tweeted pictures of the scene showed the train up against the buffers with debris strewn around including a mangled bike.
Virgin said: "We can confirm that an incident took place earlier today at Chester station.
"It took place at approximately 12.10pm and the train involved was the 10.10pm Virgin Trains' service from London Euston to Chester. One person was taken to hospital as a precaution.
"No other train was involved. The train is currently in a bay platform so it will not affect any other services."
Virgin Trains have invited passengers to take off their shoes and take a wander along the newly-installed grassy platform at Euston Station in London.
The grass has been placed between platforms two and three at the station.
UPDATE due to todays weather conditions, Virgin Trains have lifted all ticket restrictions for the remainder of the day. #uksnow
