Great Northern and Thameslink services on the Hitchin line have reopened after one person was arrested for allegedly trespassing on the station’s tracks.

At around 9.30am today, Govia Thameslink alerted train users to disruption on the Hitchin line.

Initially, the train operator said delays were being caused after a passenger exited the train directly onto the tracks.

Later, they clarified on their Twitter account: “Following trespassers on the railway earlier today at Hitchin all lines have now reopened.

“We’re working to get services back on the move.”
