"Customers are advised to not travel on LNER services today. You are encouraged to use an alternative mode of transport to complete your journey today.

"LNER tickets for today are valid up to and including Sunday, May 16. If you decide not to travel, a full refund is available. Please contact your original point of ticket purchase within 28 days to claim your refund."

LNER says a number of Class 800 series Hitachi trains from several train companies have been taken out of service today for checks 'as a precautionary measure'.

It added: "This is being investigated by Hitachi and once trains have been checked, we hope to be able to release them back into service ASAP."
