Passengers evacuated from trains

Passengers have described how they were evacuated from a train, after overhead cables came down in Hertfordshire yesterday.

The First Capital Connect service came to a halt just outside Radlett. And, after a two-hour wait, passengers were forced to walk down the line to the station.

One of those on board, Martin Stewart, said that there were "lots of sparks when the cable hit the train".
