03-08-2016 updated

Rail services on a busy route out of Prague were disrupted Wednesday when a goat fell from cliffs onto the track, damaging overhead wires in the process. The incident took place between Karlštejn and Beroun, part of the busy route between Prague and Plzeň. A spokesman for Czech Railways said it had no information on the state of the animal, adding that the rail company was not insured against falling goats. The line was reduced to one track but was expected to running back to normal by midday.
