  • 9-12-2015

A train carrying 150 people was evacuated when a fire started underneath a carriage at Warwick Parkway railway station.

The 07:46 Leamington to Worcester Shrub Hill via Birmingham service caught fire just before 08:00 BST.

The fire had started in the running gear of one of the rear carriages, said Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Engineers for train provider London Midland are investigating and replacement bus services are in place.

The 08:00 Leamington to Birmingham service was held up as fire crews from Leamington and Coleshill put out the flames.

Francis Thomas, for London Midland, said the train was in the station when the fire alarm went off.

"I'm glad to say all the automatic fire systems kicked in immediately."
