No trains on the routes can run in either direction between Market Harborough and Leicester.

Some services will take a diversionary route between Leicester and Kettering, which can add up to 40 minutes to the journey times.

At present EMT is expecting the line to fully reopen in the next 2 hours.

Normal train service is expected to resume on the affected routes at around 1730..
