Network Rail say they don't know how long it might take to clear the Tyne Valley rail line, between Newcastle and Carlisle, after a second landslip in the Hexham area in two days.
120 tonnes of rubble and trees slid onto the track between Hexham and Corbridge this morning - just hours after the line had re-opened following yesterday's landslide in the same area.
There are replacement buses between Prudhoe and Hexham.
The landslip, which caused part of the Carlisle to Newcastle rail line to close, is expected to re-open fully on Monday, February 8.
The massive landslip which caused part of the Newcastle to Carlisle rail line to close for the last month, has finally been cleared.
Engineers say they hope a section of the Network Rail line between Prudhoe and Hexham blocked by a landslide could reopen in a month
