Virgin train photobombs Flying Scotsman

25 February 2016 Last updated at 20:00 GMT

A rail enthusiast who waited by the tracks to see the Flying Scotsman only for it be obscured by a Virgin train travelling in the opposite direction at the vital moment has been offered a free flight to make up for his disappointment.

Ryan Allen, from Spilsby, Lincolnshire, was filming the Scotsman as it made its inaugural run after a decade-long, £4.2m refit.

Richard Branson apologised to Ryan Allen, and Virgin Atlantic said it would fly him to the US city of Atlanta to see its “super busy rail network”.
