No Metro between South Gosforth and Shiremoor during morning rush hour

There are will be no Metro trains running during rush hour (TUE 16th) between South Gosforth and Shiremoor.

A limited replacement bus service is operating instead.

It's after a huge power surge on Monday (15th) afternoon that left passengers across the Metro network trapped on stranded trains.

An investigation is taking place to find out what caused it.

It's unclear how long this stretch of line will be affected for.
