An LNER spokesperson said: "An object being caught on the overhead electric wires between Grantham and Newark North Gate is causing disruption to journeys between these stations. As a result of this, trains may be delayed or revised.

"Please be aware that trains and stations may be busier than usual during times of disruption. Please consider delaying your journey if you are unable to maintain a two metre distance between yourself and other customers."
