Overhead wire damage is causing severe disruption to rail services through Nottingham to London in both directions.
East Midlands Trains said:
‘None our trains on the route are able to run between Luton and London St Pancras in either direction.
‘At present we have no estimate for when we will be able to run our trains
‘We are strongly advising customers not to travel to / from London St Pancras today, alternative routes are the only option.
You may travel via the following alternative routes:
You may travel to Doncaster where you should change for a train to London Kings Cross
You may travel to Birmingham New Street where you should change for a train to London Euston
You may travel to Grantham where you should change for a train to London Kings Cross
‘You may travel to Nuneaton where you should change for a train to London Euston
‘We have ticket acceptance in place with London Undergound / Northern and Transpennine Express on any reasonable route.
‘All of these alternative route options are available in the opposite direction too. Don’t worry about your ticket, we have already made arrangements with other train companies for you to travel with your original ticket
‘We are trying to arrange replacement buses from Luton to go to Edgware Underground station where East Midlands Trains tickets will be accepted into London. However these buses are not in place yet.
‘These arrangements will remain in place until the line re-opens and the train service recovers.
Your Advance purchase ticket may be used on other trains, than booked on the affected routes’
