One person died and more than 30 were injured last night when a passenger train ran into the back of another train which had been derailed by a landslide in Cumbria, writes Jojo Moyes.

The 16.26 Carlisle-to-Leeds train had changed direction at Aisgill because of severe flooding and was on its way back to Carlisle when it was partially derailed by a landslide. It was then hit by the 17.45 Carlisle -to-Leeds train travelling on the next track. Some of the casualties were taken by train to hospitals in Carlisle.
