CABLE thieves have caused more rail misery for Huddersfield commuters.
Dozens of services between Leeds and Huddersfield were hit yesterday after 30m of cable was stolen from the line near Dewsbury station.
The theft at 8.50am caused delays for most of the day.
Network Rail said 14 journeys were part-cancelled, 19 diverted and a total of 134 were affected. Normal service resumed shortly before 4pm.
The disruption comes less than two weeks after all services through Huddersfield were cancelled after rail chiefs were hit by a double cable theft and signal failure during morning rush hour.
