Train services to and from Corby, Kettering and Wellingborough have been disrupted by a broken down train at Market Harborough.

Operator East Midlands Trains says there are delays of up to 40 minutes between Leicester and Bedford as a result.

Earlier, a train en route to Kettering developed a fault, causing delays to passengers.

In a tweet, East Midlands Trains said the current delays – which have been estimated to cause problems until about 1pm – are due to a separate freight service which had developed a fault at Market Harborough.
