No services are currently running between the two stations after a large conifer tree fell onto power lines near Meldreth in the early hours of this morning.

Rail replacement buses are now in place and trains northbound are terminating at Royston.

There are also some delays on services between Stevenage and Peterborough after a rail worker collapsed near the tracks.

Emergency services were called to the scene and train services passing the area were delayed.
