A person has been hit by a train at Hatfield this morning – causing travel chaos between Stevenage and London King’s Cross.

A message on Great Northern’s website reads: “Earlier today, a person was hit by a train near Hatfield.

“Most lines are now open through the station but trains will continue to be disrupted as services return to normal.

“Delays of up to 45 minutes, alterations and cancellations can be expected to trains between Stevenage and London Kings Cross/ Moorgate via Potters Bar.”

Three of the four lines have now reopened, and while northbound trains will still not stop at Hatfield, southbound ones will.

Tickets will be accepted on CrossCountry, East Midlands Trains, London Underground, Greater Anglia and UNO buses in the Hatfield area.
