Delays for road and rail travellers

Road and rail travellers endured another bleak mid-winter morning rush-hour on Friday, with disruption reported in Yorkshire.

Flooded highways and rail lines, over-running engineering work and train staff unavailability all added to the gloom of a dark, wet, late-December journey to work.

In East Yorkshire, Front Street in Burton Fleming was closed due to flooding, while high water levels also meant the closure of part of Mill Lane in Stutton, North Yorkshire.
