Trains on the Great Northern route have been delayed and may even be cancelled following reports of trespassers at Potters Bar.

Great Northern states that trains are running at a reduced speed on all lines.

Services are delayed by up to 10 minutes and may even be cancelled.

Disruption is expected until 1pm.

Great Northern added: “Services are now able to run as normal through the area however as services needed to run at a reduced speed, residual delays are still present and some short notice alterations may occur.

“There have been reports of a trespasser in the Potters Bar area.

“Whilst Network Rail response staff and the British Transport Police investigated this, services needed to run at a reduced speed in the interest of safety.”
