A train with about 50 schoolchildren on board has crashed through a level crossing barrier in Lincolnshire.
The accident happened at Rowston between Lincoln and Sleaford just before 9am on Monday.
Paramedics said one person was airlifted to Lincoln County Hospital but no other passengers were treated in the accident.
"It was very lucky that no-one else was hurt," a Lincolnshire Ambulance Service spokeswoman said.
The transport police said the Central Trains 8.04am Lincoln-to-Peterborough service struck the crossing gates.
The police said one of the barriers on the manned crossing was raised but the other was down at the time of the accident.
The train did not derail, the spokesman said.
Network Rail said the crossing has wooden-hinged gates that the crossing keeper moves when trains are coming.
The crash comes nine days after seven people died when a London-to-Plymouth express ploughed into a car at a level crossing at Ufton Nervet in Berkshire.
