A truck driver has been charged with endangering train passengers by driving onto a level crossing while a train was approaching.

Ian Lamparter is accused of ignoring warning lights at a level crossing on Dundee's Dock Street and driven onto the tracks.

He was allegedly left straddling the line and unable to drive away when his truck became blocked by another vehicle.

Lamparter, from Land Street, Keith, Aberdeenshire, is accused of driving dangerously over the incident on November 3 last year.

The 30-year-old truck driver did not appear when his case called at Dundee Sheriff Court on Friday.

Sheriff Elizabeth Munro continued the case without plea until next month
