A train travelling from Leeds was delayed tonight after a brick was apparently hurled at the windscreen from an overhead bridge.

A passenger on a service from Leeds to Edinburgh reported that the train was stopped while staff dealt with the incident.

The windscreen of the train was smashed and those on board were told that the break was caused by a brick being thrown at the windscreen.

The incident happened on a Cross Country service and the train had to then be linked onto and towed by another service to continue its journey.
