British Transport Police have issued an urgent appeal for information after a driver was injured when someone threw 'an object' which smashed his window.
A spokesman for First Great Western trains has told ITV News Meridian that it was a 'miracle' that the driver was not more badly injured when a rock smashed through his window.
First Great Western Trains say that one of their drivers suffered serious cuts and bruises to his face after an object the size of a brick was thrown from a bridge.
The 'rock' smashed through the driver's window as the train made its way from Romsey to Salisbury.
The Portsmouth to Cardiff service was delayed by an hour. A doctor on board the train treated the injured driver and a South West Trains driver stepped in to take the locamotive to Salisbury.
