No trains through Rotherham station until lunchtime due to "problem with lines"

RAIL services through Rotherham will be disrupted all morning due to problems with the lines.

Northern Rail said some lines between Rotherham Central and Meadowhall were blocked “due to emergency engineering works”.

The issue was reported at 7.45 am and is expected to cause disruption until 12.30pm.

Train services will be running non stop between Swinton and Meadowhall, and Rotherham Central “will not be served”.

The problem is also affecting Tram Train services between Sheffield and Parkgate.
