TRAINS between Sheffield and London are returning to normal after severe disruption this morning due to a major signalling fault.
Operator, East Midlands Trains, said its services were hit by problems at Leagrave, between Bedford and Luton.
Many trains were being terminated at Bedford.
Full signalling has now been restored between St Pancras and Bedford after Network Rail engineers repaired the fault. However, passengers are advised to expect delays and short-notice cancellations.
East Midlands Trains services on the mainline route to and from London St Pancras have now returned to normal following the earlier signalling problem in the Leagrave area.
A spokeswoman for East Midlands Trains said: “Services on our network are now running normally again and we are planning to run our full timetable of services to and from London during the busy evening peak period. We would like to apologise to our passengers for any inconvenience they experienced as a result of the signalling problem this morning.”
