Delays between London King’s Cross and Stevenage have cleared after a train broke down earlier this afternoon.

Trains between the two stations were delayed for up to 30 minutes after a train broke down blocking the track at Alexandra Palace.

Both Virgin Trains East Coast and Great Northern passengers were affected by the blocked line.

A spokesperson for Virgin Trains tweeted: “Disruption caused by a train fault between London King’s Cross and Stevenage has now ended. We apologise for any delay to your journey.”
