Disruptions to train services are expected between Royston and Cambridge due to an operational incident earlier today.

The incident happened on the 4.27pm service from Cambridge to London King’s Cross at Meldreth station.

The train blocked the line towards London for approximately 15 minutes, causing a delay for queuing trains by up to 30 minutes.

This has had an knock-on effect for services, and disruption is due to continue until 7pm.
