At present Network Rail are sending a team to investigate the problem. They are expected to arrive shortly.

Trains will run at a reduced speed through this area until the bridge has been inspected for safety. This may also cause congestion in this area, resulting in further delays.

East Midlands Railways said:

‘Trains running through the area in both directions may be delayed by up to 20 minutes through Market Harborough.

‘At present we are expecting the problem to be fixed in the next 2 hours. As soon as the problem is fixed our priority will be to get trains running to their advertised times again. We expect our advertised timetable to resume on the affected routes by 12:30.’
