Heavy rain and flash flooding caused havoc in Cumbria today with a train carrying workers to Sellafield nuclear plant being derailed.
The two-coach passenger train, which was carrying more than 100 people, struck a landslip near Nethertown, south of Caulderton in West Cumbria, at 6.45am.
The train remained upright and there were no injuries to passengers or staff.
A recovery train was sent but this encountered another landslide so passengers were taken to the nearest road.
A British Transport Police spokesman said: "Officers attended alongside colleagues from Cumbria Police and North West Regional Ambulance Service."
