Great Northern states that trains are running at a reduced speed on all lines.

Services are delayed by up to 10 minutes and may even be cancelled.

Disruption is expected until 1pm.

Great Northern added: “Services are now able to run as normal through the area however as services needed to run at a reduced speed, residual delays are still present and some short notice alterations may occur.

“Whilst Network Rail response staff and the British Transport Police investigated this, services needed to run at a reduced speed in the interest of safety.”
