Yes!

Its on my home turf for a start.

Saw it posted on wnxx this morning.

Saw it on the local news this evening.

Basically, the line was under pocession, with OTP movng. Apparently, a Tamper 'failed to stop' and Bumped into a 'stationary' engineers train.

4 staff injured. One has a badly broken arm.

Tamper looked abit bashed up on one end but that was about it.

Line was shut for most of this morning, trains cancelled and R-R busses run or diverted via Dr. Days Jnc. and Bath, until the Offending vehicles where removed from site (tamper was hauled away by a UID EWS 60) and the line is now clear again.

Hope this helps dude.
