The incident has caused delays for services in and out of Nottingham. Trains to and from St Pancras, Sheffield, Liverpool and Norwich were affected.

Trains began running again at around 11.30am but East Midlands Trains has told its customers to check the status of their train before travelling.

If any services are disrupted, East Midlands Trains says passengers may use their tickets onboard Northern and Transpennine Express services between Sheffield and Manchester stations.

It says: “You may also use your tickets on board Virgin East Coast services via Doncaster, to London Kings Cross.”
