East Midlands Trains say a person has been hit by a train between Nottingham and Beeston.

Trains have been cancelled and disrupted after the incident this afternoon.

A spokesman for East Midlands trains said: “A person has been hit by a train between Nottingham and Beeston. This will affect trains on the following routes:

Nottingham / London St Pancras

Matlock / Derby / Nottingham

Leicester / Lincoln / Grimsby

“Network Rail and the emergency services have now reopened the line. “

What is happening with the train service?

We are now working to restore our normal train service as quickly as we can, however there is no estimate as to when a normal service will resume.

Until then, trains on the routes will be delayed, cancelled or revised.
