RAIL passengers suffered delays and disruption after a rush-hour service broke down blocking the main line out of Sheffield.

Passengers were stuck for 90 minutes aboard the 5.44pm from Sheffield to Norwich, on Monday, which broke down on the approach to Dronfield station, where it had been due to stop.

Services behind the stricken train had to reverse into Sheffield.

The train was eventually moved by diverting a service from Manchester to Nottingham to couple onto it - meaning the train from Manchester missed out calling at Sheffield.

Dozens of passengers who wanted to go to Sheffield had to get off at Dronfield and catch another train instead.
