Northern services resume between Leeds and Carlisle

Northern services on the Settle and Carlisle Line have resumed following an earlier incident on the line.

Earlier this morning (Friday 3 September) services on the line were suspended after a train struck a bull on the tracks near to Ribblehead.

Services on the route were affected for more than four hours with many trains cancelled and delayed as a result of the incident.

Tony Baxter, Regional Director for Northern said: ā€œIā€™d like to thank our customers for their patience and understanding whilst we dealt with the incident.ā€
