Widespread disruption for Peterborough rail commuters
Peterborough rail commuters are facing widespread disruption today (Saturday, August 3).
Today is the third day of industrial action on East Midlands Trains services between Nottingham and Norwich - which runs through Peterborough - and between Peterborough and Lincoln.
Some East Midlands Trains services are also not running due to the damaged dam which has seen the town of Whaley Bridge in Derbyshire evacuated due to the risk of flooding.
And this morning, LNER is reporting that a number of trains on the East Coast Main Line between London King’s Cross and Leeds, heading through Peterborough, have been cancelled due to damage to the overhead electrical wires.
Tomorrow also sees Birmingham to Stansted Airport services not running due to industrial action. This goes through Peterborough, Stamford and March, as well as Cambridge.
