Transport Police appeal after train driver injured

British Transport Police have issued an urgent appeal for information after a driver was injured when someone threw 'an object' which smashed his window.

This was an incredibly irresponsible and dangerous act, which resulted in a train driver being injured.

It is beyond belief that anyone could throw objects at moving trains and we need to trace those responsible before their actions result in serious harm to rail staff or passengers.

If you were in the area at the time and saw anyone acting suspiciously, or know anything about the incident, then please get in touch as a matter of urgency.

– Detective Constable Trevor Wilson, British Transport Police
