Rotherham Central station reopens after flooding

ROTHERHAM Central station has reopened two days after being closed due to flooding.

Network Rail this morning reopened the lines, which were shut on Wednesday when Storm Christoph hit Yorkshire and river levels started to rise.

A Network Rail spokesman said: "Teams disconnected signalling cables and diverted trains between Meadowhall and Swinton before the railway flooded and sections of track were under water.

"Since then, they have worked tirelessly to pump water away from the railway, carry out safety inspections and reconnect the signalling system, ready for services to resume this morning for passengers who have to travel.

"People should continue to follow the latest Government guidance and must stay at home except for limited reasons."
