CHESTERFIELD: Train delayed after fence panel blows on to track

Severe wind has delayed trains coming in to Chesterfield after a fence blew on to the rail line.

The East Midlands train service was delayed at 11.10am today, Thursday, December 5,

A metal fence panel had blown on to the track - but a quick-thinking driver managed to slam the brakes on in time as the train travelled over Horns Bridge.

A spokesman for the service said the Derby to Chesterfield service would be delayed while workers moved the blockage.
