London-bound LNER train now 19 minutes late

Football fans waiting in Doncaster for their train to London King’s Cross will be waiting for a bit longer as the 10.56am LNER service is now running 19 minutes late.

The train is now due to leave Doncaster at 11.16, but it is expected the train will make up lost time over the rest of the journey, arriving at 12.48pm, just nine minutes behind schedule.

Direct Sheffield to London train cancelled

One of the last trains able to get Sheffield Wednesday and Barnsley FC fans to London in time for the League One Play-Off Final has been cancelled.

The 11.37am EMR service to London St Pancras International will now not go ahead. It would have got fans to the capital for 1.39pm, but travelling from King’s Cross St Pancras to Wembley on the London Underground takes at least 40 minutes.
