Officers are appealing for witnesses to an incident which caused damage to a train in Doncaster.

The incident happened between 4.30 and 6.30pm on 6 May near to St Peters Road in Doncaster.  

Concrete lids (used to protect railway signal cables) and planks of wood were placed on the middle of the track – which later caused the underside of a passing train to be damaged. Placing items on the tracks is incredibly dangerous and officers are working hard to identify who is responsible. 

Were you in the area at the time, did you see anyone acting suspiciously or gaining access to the railway? If you did or you have any other information about this incident, please text us 61016 quoting 422 of 10 May. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
