There was commuter chaos in Huddersfield this morning when problems on the train lines meant services to Leeds were severely disrupted.

A wagon became uncoupled from a freight train between Marsden and Huddersfield.

It meant train services from Manchester towards Huddersfield were replaced with buses, and this in turn caused major problems for people heading from Huddersfield towards Leeds.

With train services from Manchester being diverted and not calling at Huddersfield, there were huge queues at Huddersfield station as coaches were put on to replace them.

People took to Twitter to express their frustrations.

Alex Humphries tweeted: “A broken down freight train has meant all trains to Leeds from Huddersfield are cancelled. Commuter chaos!”

Gary Wood said: “Scenes off chaos in Huddersfield. All trains to Leeds cancelled, replaced by tiny coaches.”

And Kirklees councillor Andrew Cooper tweeted from his seat on a bus, saying: “On rail replacement bus service. No trains between Hudds & Leeds due to broken down freight train. M62 busy as well!”

National Rail said problems were expected until about 10am.

It said trains were still running the other way, from Huddersfield towards Manchester.
