National Rail says the disruption will last all day


Disruption to rail services to and from London Kings Cross is expected until the end of the day, National Rail has warned.

It says:

Damage to the overhead electric wires between Peterborough and Stevenage means all lines are currently blocked.

As a result of this, trains may be cancelled, delayed by up to 120 minutes or revised.

Major disruption is expected until the end of the day.

The routes affected include:

  • Grand Central between Sunderland / Bradford Interchange and London Kings Cross
  • Hull Trains between Beverley / Hull and London Kings Cross
  • LNER between Berwick-Upon-Tweed / Edinburgh / Aberdeen / Newcastle / Middlesbrough / Stirling / Sunderland / Skipton / Hull / Bradford Forster Square / Harrogate / York / Lincoln / Leeds and London Kings Cross.
