'Be Leaf it or not' - why do leaves cause problems for commuters?

DART and commuter trains were delayed by up to 40 minutes today because of fallen leaves on the line.

Iarnrod Eireann has produced a video, posted on YouTube, called 'Be Leaf it or not', explaining why they cause problems and how the company tackles the issue.

A spokesman said that winter was the company's least favourite season, and that customers found it difficult to understand how a few leaves caused trains weighing hundreds of tonnes to be delayed.
