Rail services suspended following lightning strikes

All Northern train services in and out of Leeds are currently suspended due to signalling problems caused by lightning strikes, with many other services in Yorkshire also suspended.

Customers are asked not to travel on the rail network until 2pm at the earliest.

Northern tickets will also be accepted on all Arriva buses across Yorkshire.

Northern Rail said: “We do not have an estimated time for the renewal of services at this stage and are working with Network Rail and other industry partners to develop plans to get customers on the move again.

“Further updates will be provided as soon as possible. We are very sorry for the delay this may cause to your journey.”
