Northern has condemned an attack on one of its trains which saw a brick thrown at the driver’s window.

Yobs attacked a Northern service as it passed near Clifton on Friday night - covering the driver in shards of broken glass.

The driver had to be taken to hospital following the incident around 10pm.

Northern tweeted: “This is simply not acceptable and puts many lives at risk.
