Network Rail were alerted to the derailment of a freight train after a member of the public saw some of its 27 empty wagons 'jump'. The train had been travelling from Georgemas in Caithness to Hartlepool on 23 February this year.

Parts of a brake broke and fell on to the tracks at Dalchalm level crossing in Sutherland causing the last wagon to derail, according to a new report.

It re-railed at another level crossing about 340m (0.2mile) down the line.
