‘There are trespassers on the railway at Grantham. This is disrupting our trains on the Liverpool/ Nottingham/ Norwich and Nottingham- Skegness route.
Network Rail and the police are on site attempting to remove the trespassers. We are awaiting a further update.

‘Trains running through the area in both directions between Nottingham and Noriwch and Nottingham and Skegness cannot run.

‘Where possible, trains will be diverted and so they will not call at Grantham.
Some services will be altered or cancelled so please check before you travel and expect delays.

‘At present we are expecting the problem to be fixed in the next 2 hours. As soon as the problem is fixed 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 10:30.’
