    As reported by @NRE_Northern.

    Although I hear there is only disruption to the mane line.

    Cue lion related puns...

    It seems that after a brief paws in the service, trains are no longer roaring through Shepley but calling as normal.

    I was there earlier, saw a geezer sprinting up the road and asked him if he'd seen the lion down ther. His reply?

    This story made it onto the Radio 4 news at 9. Apparently the police found nothing.
