The fire which has shut Nottingham train station this morning is hitting rail users who want to travel from Derby to Nottingham.

Services to Nottingham have either been cancelled or delayed - and disruption is expected until at least 10am - but there are alternative options available to commuters.

Bus operator TrentBarton operates the Red Arrow service between the two cities - which is a non-stop link providing buses every 10 minutes.

Buses can be caught from Derby Bus Station in the Morledge. They use the A52 to get to Nottingham where they drop passengers off at Nottingham’s Queen's Medical Centre and Victoria Bus Station.

Journey times between Derby Bus Station and Victoria Station take approximately 45 minutes.
