Passengers are being warned about delays on train services in Nottinghamshire after cables were stolen this morning (March 24).

Thieves have taken signalling cable at Bingham, causing disruption to East Midlands Trains on the Liverpool Lime Street/Nottingham/Norwich and Nottingham/Grantham/Skegness routes.

Network Rail is currently on site trying to fix the problem with new cables.

Some trains on the Liverpool Lime Street/Nottingham/Norwich route will be unable to run whilst others diverted and delayed by 20 minutes.

All trains on the Nottingham/Grantham/Skegness route cannot run and will be subject to short notices cancellations and alterations in both directions between Nottingham and Grantham.

A replacement bus service will run both directions between Nottingham and Grantham.

A spokesman for East Midlands Trains said: “Currently we are expecting the line to fully reopen within 2-3 hours and for normal train service to resume at around 11.30am.

“We are very sorry for the delay to your journey this morning. “
