A 64-year-old man was taken to hospital with back injuries after the the accident. Passengers said the train was travelling at a slow speed as it prepared to stop and it simply “over ran” into the buffers before hitting a glass wall.

“Virgin Trains can confirm that an incident took place earlier today at Chester Station. It took place at approximately 12:10 and the train involved was the 10:10 Virgin Trains’ service from London Euston to Chester. No other train was involved. The train is currently in a bay platform so it will not affect any other services,” spokesperson for the train company said.
