Fifty Greenpeace activists have stopped and occupied a freight train delivering 1,500 tonnes of coal to Nottinghamshire's Cottam power station.
We were called to a crossing at Westbrecks Lane in South Leverton, Retford at 2.45pm following reports of a number of protestors, believed to be from Greenpeace, halting the progress of a coal train.
Officers are currently responding to the incident together with colleagues from Nottinghamshire Police.
French energy giant EDF, which operates Cottam and West Burton A coal-fired power station and West Burton B gas-fired power plant in Nottinghamshire, said: "EDF Energy can confirm that individuals have boarded a freight train carrying coal to Cottam power station in Nottinghamshire.
"The safety of our employees and the public is our priority and we are currently working with British Transport Police to ensure everyone involved is safe and out of harm.
"We operate a diverse mix of electricity generation and produce more low-carbon electricity than any other generator in Britain from our nuclear power stations and wind farms."
Meanwhile DB Schenker Rail UK confirmed that one of their trains has been brought to a stand by a number of protesters on the Cottam branch line near Retford. The train was travelling from Humber International Terminal to Cottam Power Station carrying 1,500 tonnes of coal.
