Rail travellers have been hit by major disruption after a tractor damaged a track and overhead wires in West Yorkshire.
The incident in Fitzwilliam, between Wakefield and Doncaster, on Wednesday led to all lines being blocked. Firefighters and a specialist recovery service removed the tractor from the line but National Rail said repair work was taking place and services were unlikely to resume fully until 6pm on Thursday.
