The train, which was travelling towards Barrow, Cumbria, came off the tracks near Grange-over-Sands.

Four customers and four staff members were on it at the time.

No one was injured during the incident, say the train company.

Northern’s regional director, Craig Harrop, said: “We are focusing on supporting colleagues and customers who were involved in the incident and on minimising the disruption this incident will cause to other services.

“We’re working closely with Network Rail and others to understand more about what happened.”
