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.
