In an update to earlier information, Great Northern tweeted: “Due to the emergency services dealing with an incident between Peterborough and Hitchin all lines are blocked.

Disruption for commuters on the line from London King’s Cross up to Peterborough is currently expected until 11am.

Tickets are being accepted on alternative lines:

Great Northern had earlier tweeted that all lines were blocked between Stevenage and Huntingdon while the incident was being investigated.
