A train driver was forced to jump for his life from a runaway locomotive after the brakes failed - causing it to career off the tracks.

The steam train Akbar Express has featured in dozens of Bollywood movies and it usually chugs 760 miles across India in a journey taking 24 hours.

But the brake levers jammed on Sunday leaving the driver with no choice but to jump from the carriage while the 65-year-old famous train was moving.
