UK storms: Crewe train station evacuated after fire

Around 500 passengers have been evacuated from Crewe station after a fire was sparked by felt from the roof - blown loose by strong winds - falling onto overhead cables.

Passengers have been moved to a nearby hotel.

BBC producer Becky Kelly, who was among those evacuated, says hotels in the area are already fully-booked and that rail companies are struggling to find replacement transport.
