2015-05-25 Car and Caravan Trapped on Railway Line
Train services between Leeds, Selby and York were disrupted on Friday evening after a car towing a caravan became stuck on a level crossing in North Yorkshire. The vehicle was crossing the railway tracks on the A1238 Leeds Road in Thorpe Willoughby, near Selby, when it became trapped. A local witness said the barrier had come down between the car and the caravan, meaning it could not be moved off the tracks. The incident happened at 4.20pm and was quickly cleared by Network Rail staff so that normal services resumed at 5.30pm

Everyone who lived through it has his or her own personal memories of those historic events. If you have a story, why not share it with us. Send it here.
