Travellers on a main London to Scotland rail route endured delays today due to overhead wire problems.

The disruption, at Retford in Nottinghamshire, caused hold-ups to passengers travelling with the East Coast, First Hull Trains and Grand Central train companies.

There were also delays to ScotRail services today due to a signalling problem near Glasgow Central station.

Some services were suspended and trains were replaced with buses between Neilston and Barrhead.

In western England, a problem with line-side equipment near Chippenham in Wiltshire caused delays to First Great Western trains between Swindon and Bath Spa.
