The North East and Yorkshire escaped the worst of the storm which hit this south of the country this morning but its far-reaching effects have been felt by commuters in the region.
All trains from the North East to London were terminating at Peterbrough, outside the capital, because of flooding on the tracks and problems with overhead power cables.
The first train left London just after three today and the first train out of Peterbrough left just before five.
East Coast say they are continuing to monitor the weather.
