Rail delays due to high winds

Network Rail are urging passengers in the Border region to check before they travel, as Storm Henry approaches Britain.

The wind is expected to strengthen overnight with gusts up to 70mph.

Journeys may be delayed by the 50mph speed limits in place on the Settle - Carlisle railway between Settle and Appleby, the Cumbrian coast line and the West Coast mainline between Garstang and Tebay.

As always, our advice to passengers is to check before you travel, using National Rail Enquiries for the latest information. With even more rain predicted to fall on already saturated ground, there is the potential for localised flooding, as well as possible damage from high winds which may cause disruption to passengers planning to travel."
