Train services from Harborough to London St Pancras have been cancelled for the rest of the day after a tree fell on overhead power cables.
East Midlands Trains had announced services would be cancelled until at least 10am as heavy winds and rain were forecast.
But it has now confirmed services are suspended for the rest of the day between Bedford and London St Pancras, meaning Harborough commuters will be unable to get to the capital by train.
A message on the operator’s website states: “Train services suspended for the rest of today between Bedford and London St Pancras because of debris on the line and damage to overhead power lines.
“Other routes into London on the East and West coast main lines are also closed.
“If you are travelling to/from London we are advising you not to travel. Tickets dated for travel today will be valid tomorrow and on Tuesday 29 October and on Wednesday 30 October.
