Mainline rail services between York and Doncaster affected by suspended route
The rail failure at Colton Junction meant that trains could not operate on the section between Doncaster and York and alternative services were deployed between the two stations.
This resulted in delays and cancellations of some scheduled LNER and Lumo services, with disruptions expected for the remainder of the day while repairs were carried out on the affected section of track.
LNER said it has arranged with other operators to accept tickets at no extra cost, but many customers have been asked to reschedule their journey until tomorrow.

From today until the end of the month (31st) there is a new “flash sale”.
Selling offer is £2 for 2 months (monthly) or save 20% and pay £63.20 annually.
The delays posed problems for some of the 5,000 Gateshead fans who traveled to Wembley this afternoon for the FA Trophy final against Halifax.
While a special fan train operated by Lumo arrived in London 40 minutes late, some fans traveling on other operators are said to have been less fortunate.
Passengers on the early trains due to run on Monday have been advised to find out about the situation in the morning. It is hoped that traffic will be back to normal by then.
