Damage to overhead wires on the East Coast Main Line between Newark and Retford causing disruption to LNER train services





Damage to overhead wires has caused disruption for a number of rail services.

LNER has alerted customers that many of its morning services will terminate or begin at Peterborough rather than their planned stations, due to damage to the overhead electric wires on the East Coast Main Line.

LNER managing director David Horne apologies for the disruption on X (formerly Twitter), explaining that it was a result of the overhead power lines coming down on the southbound line between Newark and Retford.

He said: “We’re doing our best to run services using the other line and diversionary routes.”
