LNER advise customers ‘do not travel’

On Tuesday, July 19, LNER have warned customers not to travel on routes south of York and Leeds, following severe disruption on Monday, July 18.

LNER’s advice covers routes south of York and Leeds, to London Kings Cross, as ‘no train will run’; including journeys to and from Wakefield Westgate, Doncaster, Retford, Lincoln, Newark Northgate, Grantham, Peterborough and Stevenage.

These cancellations of services come after overhead wires between Newcastle and Berwick were damaged on Monday and severe weather warnings were forecast for today, Tuesday, July 19.

LNER have also said there will be limited train services to other destinations and due to speed restrictions in place, it’s highly likely those running will be subject to significant delays.

Tickets dated for travel on Monday, July 18 and Tuesday, July 19 are valid for travel on Wednesday, July 20 and Thursday, July 21. To make sure you have a comfortable journey you can book a new seat reservation for free and use your original ticket onboard the train you select.

If you’re no longer travelling, you’ll be entitled to a full refund or you can change your ticket to another date.
