A TEENAGE girl told of her terror as a stone was hurled through a train window – missing her head by inches.
Morgan Woodward, 13, was on a train from Huddersfield to Shepley when a yob hurled the seven-inch stone through the window at Stocksmoor.
She and other passengers were showered with fragments from the shattered window but luckily, no-one was hurt. British Transport Police are investigating.
Morgan, of Glasgow, was visiting family in Huddersfield and was on the train with her dad Andrew.
She said: “I had caught the train from Huddersfield and we had just left Stocksmoor station when the window exploded.
“Something missed my head by only a couple of inches and a girl sitting opposite picked up the stone, which was seven inches by four inches.
“The train staff moved us all out of that carriage into other seats and we went on to Shepley.
“It was very frightening and it could have been really bad had the stone hit someone.”
Insp Richard Price, of British Transport Police, said: “This was an extremely foolish and dangerous act, which resulted in a train being damaged.
“Throwing stones at fast moving trains is an incredibly irresponsible thing to do and we have stepped up patrols in the area to try and catch those responsible.
“We urge those who think that throwing stones and other objects at trains is fun to think about the consequences of their actions, which in this case could have been much worse.
