Nottingham Train Station has partially re-opened after a suspected arson attack yesterday.
East Midlands Trains confirmed the station re-opened at 04:45am this morning with most trains running as normal.
However platforms 6 and 7 remain closed and passengers are still advised to check before they travel.
The following disruption can be expected today:
- London - Nottingham: Stopping services will run as normal, fast services will start/terminate at East Midlands Parkway
- Liverpool - Norwich: Services running as normal
- Nottingham - Worksop: All services cancelled and a rail replacement bus service will operate
- Matlock - Newark: Services to run between Matlock and Derby only
- Leicester - Lincoln: Services to run between Leicester and Loughborough and between Nottingham and Lincoln only
- Nottingham - Skegness: Services to run as normal
All other East Midlands Trains routes which do not run via Nottingham (Crewe, Grimsby, Lincoln to Peterborough, and Lincoln to Doncaster routes, as well as other mainline services) will operate as normal.
Both overbridges at the station are open and the Queen's Road, Station Street and Carrington Street entrances are all now open.
The IT systems have been affected by the fire, resulting in limited ticketing facilities and no electronic boards displaying train times.
An East Midlands Trains spokesman said part of the station is boarded up as investigations continue. They added:
Jake Kelly, Managing Director of East Midlands Trains, thanked the emergency services after the fire broke out around 06.30am on Friday.
British Transport Police have now launched an investigation after confirming they are treating the fire as arson.
The Grade II listed building has been significantly damaged after the fire spread from a toilet block to the main concourse and the roof.
Transport Minister Jo Johnson visited Nottingham Station yesterday following the fire. He said:
Some 60 firefighters tackled the blaze with specialist equipment and it was brought fully under control by the afternoon.
No-one was injured.
