Commuters rescued from broken train after three-hour wait

Passengers in West Yorkshire have been rescued after being stranded on a train for more than three hours.

The service from Ilkley broke down outside Leeds station just after 09:00 BST.

Some commuters complained that train operator Northern Rail had been slow to provide water. The company said it was investigating the causes of the incident and said it "believed there was an issue with the overhead power lines, possibly as a result of vandalism".
