A Beach train operating along Ingoldmells beach today (Thursday, August 7) has crashed into a waterway.

The train was pictured by a Skegness Standard reader just as it happened (around 5.15pm).

According to our eye witness, the beach train was trying to turn into the driveway when it became stuck.

While operators attempted to move the rear car, stuck against a metal post, the train became free but ran away down the bank with the driver trying to stop it by hanging onto the back of it, said the reader.

The train was empty and no one was on board.
