People travelling south of Cumbria by train are facing delays of up to an hour.

It's due to a train fault between Lancaster and Preston, and southbound services are expected to be affected until around 12pm.

Replacement buses are conveying passengers between Preston and Lancaster in both directions until further notice.

Landslides cause rail disruption between Workington and Carlisle

Sorry, this content isn't available on your device.

The West Coast rail between Workington and Carlisle remains closed following heavy rain and landslides overnight.

Two track side land-slips at Wigton and Aspatria, and four seperate floods at Maryport have led Northern Rail to close services on the line until further notice.

Train services are being replaced by buses between Workington and Carlisle until further notice. We have members of our station team at Workington and Carlisle to assist.

We would like to apologise to our customers for this disruption. Network Rail engineers are working hard to return the railway to us as soon as possible."
