Northern services resume between Leeds and Carlisle

03 September 2021
Northern services on the Settle and Carlisle Line have resumed following an earlier incident on the line.

Earlier this morning (Friday 3 September) services on the line were suspended after a train struck a bull on the tracks near to Ribblehead.

Services on the route were affected for more than four hours with many trains cancelled and delayed as a result of the incident.

Tony Baxter, Regional Director for Northern said: “I’d like to thank our customers for their patience and understanding whilst we dealt with the incident.”
