A collapsed bridge has led to delays on rail services in the area.

There are currently no trains between Leicester and Loughborough this morning (Tuesday, August 2), due to the bridge collapse at Barrow Upon Soar.

A Network Rail spokesperson said: “Owing to a bridge collapse at Barrow Upon Soar, train services between Leicester and Loughborough will be disrupted today.

This will affect journeys on the London St Pancras/Nottingham/Leicester and the Leicester/Lincoln/Grimsby routes. We are working to clear the track as quickly as possible and reopen the line, however passengers are advised to check before they travel and allow extra time for their journeys.”
