Vandals have attacked another high speed train - this time injuring the driver. Earlier this week the windscreen of a train was shattered on the line between Portsmouth and Salisbury.

In the latest incident this afternoon a piece of wood was thrown at the window of a First Great Western service travelling between Pangbourne and Didcot. No passengers were injured. British Transport Police said the vandalism could have had 'catastrophic consequences'.
