Passengers break out of stuck train in Cambridgeshire

Passengers forced open the doors of a train after it broke down near a Cambridgeshire village station.

The First Capital Connect Service to Cambridge from King's Cross, stopped outside Foxton, near Cambridge, shortly before 1700 BST.

About 15 people broke open the doors and walked along the track to the station.

The remaining passengers waited on board to be collected. British Transport Police attended the scene.

A spokesman for First Capital Connect said problems with overhead power cables had halted the train, which also called at stops in Hertfordshire.
