Virgin Trains East Coast and Grand Central services affected by damage to overhead electric wires between Retford and Newark North Gate
Rail passengers using the east coast mainline have been advised to delay their journeys until Friday in the wake of major disruption to services.
The problems were caused by damage to overhead electric wires between Retford and Newark North Gate early on Thursday afternoon.
4 hour delay on train & flights full, so sorry to miss @bbcquestiontime. Jinxed! Won’t have this problem when we renationalise the railways.
@ryantomlinson We haven’t got a plan in place yet, Ryan. We’re still trying to sort out the issues tonight. ^MS
@shenfieldpete Apologies for the disruption, Peter. We have a dedicated team of engineers who are carrying out targeted 1/2
