FLOODING: Rotherham station closed until at least tomorrow

ROTHERHAM Central station will remain closed until at least tomorrow, rail operators Northern have said.

Services were suspended after heavy rain on Thursday left the tracks flooded,

The operator confirmed this morning that while the Sheffield to Leeds line is running with an hourly service, it will not stop at Rotherham “until further notice”, with journeys diverted through the old Masbrough station.

A spokesman said: “Northern is working closely with colleagues at Network Rail to return normal working to the railway as soon as possible, but conditions remain challenging and a reduced service will operate on several routes until further notice.

“Northern customers across the network are advised to allow extra time for travel and to check ahead as there remains potential for disruption to services and timetables may be amended on some routes.

“Passengers are advised to listen for announcements and check information screens for up dates where possible for your service today.”
