Storm Ciara: Rail passengers in Grantham advised not to travel as Storm Ciara heads for UK
Rail passengers are being advised not to travel tomorrow (Sunday) as Storm Ciara is expected to bring severe weather conditions to much of the UK.
London North Eastern Railway (LNER) says its trains will be restricted to 50mph, which has been imposed by Network Rail.
LNER will operate a significantly reduced timetable that will see half of the usual number of services run throughout Sunday.
David Horne, managing director of LNER, said: “We are expecting significant disruption to LNER services this Sunday, so we are advising customers not to travel.
“Customers with tickets booked for Sunday should instead use their tickets to travel on any LNER service on Saturday 8 February, before 6pm, or on Monday 10 February.
“For customers who do not wish to travel, a full refund will be available without charge.”
Gales and heavy rain are forecast for the Grantham area on Sunday. Residents are warned this could cause some structural damage and they should only travel if absolutely necessary.
