Trains on the Airedale line were delayed this morning after high winds caused damage to a level crossing barrier at Cononley.

The problem was reported just after 7am.

A spokesman for operator Northern Rail said: “Trains had to travel slower than normal through Cononley as a precaution until repairs were carried out, which delayed services by about ten minutes.”

She added that services were back to normal by about 8.30am.
