There are many reasons why your train journey can be delayed at this time of year it’s normally caused by leaves on the line, however passengers travelling to and from Shepley in West Yorkshire found they were delayed because of a sighting of a lion on the line.
Reports from members of the public of the big cat or possible cub in the area caused the delays as officers searched the area using a police helicopter, train services were resumed after nothing was found. In total passengers were delayed for only 17 minutes before the search was stopped at around 3.30pm. Investigations into the incident were continuing, according to a spokesman for West Yorkshire Police last night.
