After the recent flooding which has had a significant impact on large parts of the road and rail network, East Midlands Trains has advised passengers to allow extra time for their journeys home on Christmas Eve.
East Midlands Trains services between Derby and Nottingham have been affected by the heavy rain and subsequent flooding, which have caused the River Erewash to burst its banks.
"We know that many people will be travelling home on Christmas Eve and we want to make sure they allow plenty of time for their journey. With flooding affecting large parts of the rail and road network, journeys make take longer than usual.
"We will continue to work with Network Rail to resume normal services as quickly as possible."
East Midlands Trains services are planned to finish earlier than normal on Christmas Eve, with the last service from St Pancras departing at 20.30.
