Network Rail has told passengers this morning (Monday, January 3) that trains are having to abide by a 20mph speed limit. This is because there was movement trackside yesterday (Sunday, January 2).

A spokesperson for the rail company said ‘geotechnical engineers have been assessing the site since then’.

Due to the speed limit, passengers should expect journeys to take longer.
