‘There is a fault with the signalling system at Syston. This is between Leicester and Loughborough and is disrupting our trains on our London St Pancras / Nottingham / Derby route, and our Leicester / Nottingham/ Lincoln/ Grimsby route, and London St Pancras / Luton Airport Parkway / Corby route.

‘Network Rail are now on site and have identified the problem, and are working to carry out the repairs. Currently the repairs are expected to take most of the day to complete.

‘Trains running through the area are able to run at a slower speed, but the congestion due to this disruption is causing heavy delays and alterations.
