Train services back to normal after disruption caused by damaged cables near Grantham

Rail services in Grantham are back to normal following disruption yesterday (Tuesday) caused by damage to overhead cables.

Trains were reported to have come to a halt - one in the Peascliffe tunnel near Grantham - due to the damage to cables between Grantham and Newark.

Some passengers posted on social media, saying conditions were "hot". One posted that two women had fainted due to the conditions.

Others thanked LNER staff for handing out free water.

An LNER spokesperson said yesterday: "We apologise to customers for disruption to their journeys today. This is due to damage to the overhead power lines in the Grantham area.

"We are working with Network Rail to get trains moving through the area and wherever possible are diverting services until engineers are able to fix the problem."
