Rail passengers due to use the East Coast main line are being urged to delay their travel after an overhead wire problem prompted huge disruption to the service at the end of the bank holiday weekend.
A spokesman for the rail provider said the problems were likely to cause further delays at the start of service tomorrow.
Network Rail engineers have been working through the night to restore the overhead power lines, however, it is currently unlikely that this work will be completed in time for the start of this morning's services. As a consequence, East Coast trains are expected to be severely restricted, and cancellations are likely throughout the day.
Customers are advised to defer travel until later in the day, or alternatively, to travel tomorrow if possible. Tickets dated for travel on Monday or Tuesday will be valid for travel on Wednesday and customers are advised to try to travel as close as possible to their original booked time.
Passengers aboard trains on the East Coast main line have complained of delays of around eight hours after severe disruptions hit the service.
Not a bad journey home, 11 hours as opposed to just the 3 it should of been. If I don't laugh about it I don't know what to do #Peterborough

Overhead wire problems between Peterborough and Stevenage caused extensive disruption to services on the East Coast main line heading into London King's Cross yesterday and engineers worked through the night to repair the damage.

The inquest is taking place into the deaths of two sisters killed in a road accident on the A47 near Wisbech in December 2012.
Ten-year-old Tamzin Portor and seven-year-old Jessica were on their way to watch a film in Peterborough as a Christmas treat.
They were back seat passengers in a Ford Focus driven by their step mother Marie Easter. Their father Alan was a front seat passenger.
Marie Easter told the Coroner she had to swerve to avoid a car coming in the opposite direction. She said she lost control and knocked herself out. She could not remember anything else.
The car overturned and the girls were killed.
Earlier this year she was given a suspended prison sentence after admitting causing the deaths of the girls by careless driving.
The girls' father Alan Portor said he was on the phone and did not see the car that Marie said she was forced to avoid, but believed her - even though others had claimed it was not true.
He said he had checked with the children that they were wearing seat belts, and they said 'yes'.
The inquest continues.
