Two teenage boys are to be interviewed over an attack on a train in South Yorkshire.

The 15-year-olds were tracked down after British Transport Police released CCTV images of youths they wanted to speak to over the incident, in which a rock was thrown at a passenger train in Kilnhurst - smashing a window.

The rock was thrown from a bridge, narrowly missing the driver, at around 5.30pm on Saturday, September 10

The train involved, the 4.19pm Northern Rail Scunthorpe to Lincoln service, was travelling through Kilnhurst when the driver spotted two boys on the bridge above the railway, off High Thorne Road.

It smashed through the glass destination sign screen and ended up in the train cab, missing the driver by inches.

A Northern Rail spokesman said it was a 'mindless act of vandalism'.

A British Transport Police spokesman said: "Two 15-year-old boys have been identified and will be interviewed."
