A derailed freight train is currently blocking the route at the south of the station meaning no trains can depart from Doncaster to Sheffield and all lines are blocked between the two stations.

Train services running between the stations will be cancelled or terminated at the stations, before starting again at Conisborough. 

An amended train service will run between Sheffield and Conisborough only.
