Northern Rail said the line has now reopened, however delays of up to 15 minutes are expected until 10am.

Trains were unable to serve Dronfield earlier this morning due to the fault with a rail replacement bus put into operation to ferry customers between Sheffield and Dronfield, and Dronfield and Chesterfield

CrossCountry trains were also affected but no update has been given by the rail operator.
