Residents travelling to South Yorkshire have been warned of severe train disruption as flood-hit network Northern Rail continues a recovery operation.

Some rail services have returned to South Yorkshire this morning (Monday, November 11) though there are amended timetables on most lines.

Work was carried out through the night and into the morning to prepare the tracks, and services are now operating in most areas.

Northern said it was 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.
