A person has been struck by a train on the Nottingham – Lincoln line.
East Midlands Railways said:
‘We are sad to report that a person has been hit by a train.
‘The train is at Lowdham station. We have arranged transport for the passengers on board. This will arrive at 20:00.’
‘This has occurred around the Lowdham area and is disrupting our trains between Nottingham and Lincoln.
‘At present emergency services have now arrived on site, we have also sent an engineer to check the safety of the train and they are expected to arrive in the next 20 minutes.
How does this affect my train?
‘Trains running through the area in both directions cannot run.
‘At present we are expecting the line to re-open in the next 3 hours.
‘As soon as the line is open again, our priority will be to get trains running to their advertised times again.
‘We expect our advertised timetable to resume on the affected routes by 2100.’
