Train delays are expected to last until 3pm between Royston and Cambridge due to overhead wire problems.

All Great Northern services between London King’s Cross to Kings Lynn are likely to be affected, with trains being delayed by up to 40 minutes. Some services have been cancelled.

A shuttle bus is currently running between Letchworth and Cambridge.

Unhappy passengers have taken to Twitter to express their annoyance.

Harry Forsyth tweeted: “Three cancelled trains in a matter of 30 minutes to King’s Cross. Instead of saying utter crap to us, tell the truth! #nothappy!”
