A driver has been arrested on suspicion of drinking and driving after a crash with a train at a level crossing.

Video footage shows the South Western Railway train on top of the car at the Waterloo level crossing in Wokingham, Berkshire, at 23:30 GMT on Thursday.

There were no injuries but passengers had to continue their journey by coach.

Train services between Wokingham and Ascot were suspended for much of Friday, with trains from London to Reading terminating at Ascot.

British Transport Police said the driver was also being questioned over endangering safety on the railway.
