Rail services between Carlisle and Lockerbie are delayed, because of a fault with the signalling system between Carstairs and Lockerbie.

The fault is thought to have been caused by the bad weather sweeping through the region.

Disruption is expected to continue until around 12pm.

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."
