A tree falling onto the train line at Knebworth has caused disruption to rail services.

Rail operator First Capital Connect have tweeted to say that services will be diverted via the Hertford Loop.

The tree had previously been on the overhead wires at Knebworth, causing delays of up to 60 minutes for trains between London Kings Cross and Stevenage.

Earlier First Capital Connect had warned passengers of major disruptions to rail services today (Monday) and tomorrow (Tuesday) due to the severe storms in the run-up to Christmas.

More information on the delays can be found at www.firstcapitalconnect.co.uk.
