Trains in and out of Melton Mowbray were delayed this evening following an incident where a person was struck by a train.
Earlier this evening a National Rail Spokesperson said: “Emergency services are dealing with an incident between Leicester and Melton Mowbray / Loughborough meaning all lines are blocked.
Train services running through these stations may be cancelled or delayed. Disruption is expected until 19:15.”
East Midlands Railway, who operate the line, have since updated passengers saying: “As reported earlier, sadly a person has been hit by a train between Leicester and Loughborough. We are relieved to say that the person has had an incredibly lucky escape and has avoided injury. The line has now re-opened. Our services are heavily disrupted due to the diversion and cancellation of many of our services.”
Help is there if you need it. Contact the Samaritans on 116 123 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
