Several passengers and a train driver have been injured after a train collided with the vehicle on a level crossing in England. 

The tractor driver was seriously hurt and many of the 135 train passengers sustained comparably minor injuries as a result of the crash which took place at around 12.30pm today. Reports say that paramedics treated 10 people at the scene while others were transferred to hospital. 

The train was not derailed during the incident and the police have announced that the road would be closed "for some time."
