Boy hurt in 'large' railway line explosion in Coseley
A 15-year-old boy has been injured in a "large" explosion on a railway line.
The teenager suffered burns to his arm after he dangled an object over a bridge onto the electric lines near Coseley station in the Black Country.
Police said the object caused a power surge and "fortunately" he was not too badly injured. He was taken to Birmingham Children's Hospital.
Emergency crew received reports of a large explosion and smoke from the railway line at about 08:15 BST.
A spokesman for British Transport Police said they were investigating but that nobody else was involved in the incident.
