Passengers are facing delays until 9pm tonight after a signalling problem caused Bank Holiday travel chaos at Sheffield station.

All lines at the station were blocked shortly after 5pm due to the issue with trains severely delayed or cancelled.

Some trains were delayed more than 90 minutes while others on major routes were cancelled, leaving Bank Holiday travellers and commuters stranded.

Lines were reopened at around 6.45pm but the knock-on effect means delays will continue until at least 9pm.
