A landslide has demolished a railway track at Stainforth affecting services between Doncaster and Goole/Hull and Scunthorpe/Cleethorpes. It will be closed until futher notice.
Network Rail say the landslide is still moving and it's too dangerous for engineers to start work on. Initial estimates are that the line will be shuft for about eight weeks from the point when the land stops moving. An amended train and bus timetable is now in operation.
Nick Donovan, FTPE Managing Director said:
"It is clearly major disruption and I want to assure passengers that we are doing everything within our power to make journeys as stress free as possible and return the line to normal service as quickly and safely as possible.
"We have relaxed ticket restrictions, produced an amended train and bus timetable and deployed additional management staff to stations. We are advising customers to check the details of their journey before they travel here
