Whitland level crossing train-lorry crash injures three

Three people have been injured after a lorry and a train collided at a level crossing in the second similar crash in under a year.

It was at Whitland, Carmarthenshire, at what is known as the Llanboidy crossing just before 16:00 BST on Friday.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service sent two engines to the scene.

A similar incident happened at the same level crossing in December 2011 when a passenger train was involved in a crash with a lorry and trailer carrying hay.

The fire service said via Twitter passengers were being transferred onto buses to Carmarthen station.

It said three casualties with minor injuries were treated by paramedics at the scene.

The B4328 road was closed while investigations were carried out.
