Train lines re-open hours after body found on tracks
Train lines have now re-opened after they were closed when a body was discovered on tracks this afternoon.
The body was found on a line at Chester-le-Street between Newcastle and Durham.
The incident left all lines blocked but London North Eastern Railway says that the lines have re-opened.
National Rail said earlier that some trains were being diverted via Sunderland.
LNER tweeted: #LNERUpdate The line has now reopened.
