UPDATED 8.50pm: Level crossing crash causes East Coast Mainline delays
7:37pm Tuesday 5th March 2013 in News
RAIL passengers traveling between York and London were caught in lengthy delays tonight following an accident at a level crossing on the East Coast Mainline.
The crash at the crossing near Doncaster saw East Coast and Grand Central Trains services being delayed by up to 75 minutes. It also meant hold-ups for Northern Rail trains between Doncaster and Selby and for passengers using services run by other operators.
However, the accident scene, at Arksey, has now been cleared and trains are running normally, although passengers have been warned some knock-on delays to East Coast and Cross Country services are likely as congestion around the Doncaster area clears.
