There are currently no trains between Leicester and Loughborough after the incident at Barrow upon Soar, causing chaos across the East Midlands Trains network.

The incident has also caused delays heading south from Kettering through Wellingborough to London St Pancras.

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.
