The 1545 Nottingham to Skegness was diverted via Lincoln to Sleaford and missing stops at Netherfield, Radcliffe, Bingham, Aslockton, Bottesford or Grantham.

East Midlands trains sent inspectors to check the safety of the bridge at 4pm.

The line has now fully reopened however our normal service is not expected to resume until around 1800 whilst we attempt to recover our advertised timetable.
