Railway disruption

RAILWAY passengers will face disruptions affecting a number of services in Hartlepool today.

Buses are replacing all Northern Rail trains from Hartlepool to Middlesbrough until at least 4pm today.

No Grand Central services called at Hartlepool at all yesterday due to a gas leak in Greatham.

The firm said passengers planning to depart from Hartlepool should arrive at the station as normal where road transport will take them to Eaglescliffe.

The National Rail says a problem near the railway line is causing disruption between Greatham and Billingham and journeys will be delayed by up to 45 minutes.
