A mother and three children escaped unhurt yesterday when their car was hit by a train. Kim Turner, 32, Jade Turner, five, Callum Turner, three and Jessica Bloom, five, of Leconfield, Yorkshire, suffered only cuts and grazes in the collision at an unstaffed level crossing near the village of Beswick.

The driver of the train was in shock after the accident and was replaced by a relief crew. The crossing is just a few miles from another on the same line where nine people were killed in July 1986 when a train struck a van.
