Flooding causes havoc on the railway system

The bad weather caused havoc with train services, with passengers hit by long delays on a number of major routes due to flooding. There were major delays on the London to Scotland East Coast main line, with services between Peterborough and Doncaster subject to 90-minute hold-ups.

There were no services between Barnsley and Wakefield Kirkgate and no trains between Sheffield and Chinley.

Another landslip - at Grantham in Lincolnshire - led to delays and diversions, while flooding meant there were delays between Leeds and Doncaster/Sheffield.
