Have your say

PASSENGERS on a train from Sheffield were delayed after a hoax caller claimed they had seen a lion near the line.

The Northern Rail service from Retford to Huddersfield had called at Sheffield, Barnsley and Penistone before it was held up at Shepley Station in West Yorkshire.

Passengers were delayed for 17 minutes and nobody was allowed to alight at the station while police were investigating.
