A young woman was hit by a train at a crossing near Harrogate on Friday morning.

The 27-year-old suffered head injuries when she was hit by the train at Forest Lane Crossing at around 8am, according to the York Press.

She is said to be in a serious but stable condition in hospital.

The rush-hour incident caused delays and cancellations between Harrogate and York, leaving commuters into Leeds facing long waits.

Passengers were told to leave one train and replacement buses were deployed.

A British Transport Police spokesman told the Yorkshire Post: "The female, a 27 year-old local woman, has suffered head injuries. She was treated at the scene by paramedics from North Yorkshire Ambulance Service and has now been taken to Harrogate Hospital.

"Enquiries are ongoing to establish the circumstances surrounding the incident."
