FIRST Capital Connect (FCC) said today (Thursday) that train services would soon be back to normal, 24 hours after an incident near Hitchin station when a train brought down overhead power lines.

FCC said this morning that it was hoping to restore normal services as soon as possible, between London King's Cross and Peterborough - which links with stations at Knebworth, Stevenage, Letchworth GC, Hitchin, Arlesey and Royston - now the line has been repaired after overnight work by engineers.

Meanwhile a number of trains were delayed at Stevenage this morning when a National Express East Coast train broke down near the station and blocked one of the fast track lines for two hours.
