TRAIN delays are expected throughout today after a train derailed yesterday in Sheffield.

Passengers hoping to travel by train from Barnsley to Sheffield train station may experience delays after a freight train derailed yesterday (November 11) morning at 2.45am.

No-one was injured in the incident but damage was caused to the tracks.

The train is due to be removed by crane today and the road outside the station will be closed.

Network Rail route director Matt Rice, said: "This is a significant incident, so it's only right that we take time to find out all of the facts and understand what has caused this.

"Once it is safe to do so, we will start work to remove the train, better assess the extent of the damage and make a plan for repairs.

"This process is taking some time and we are sorry for the disruption which this is causing. There will still be service changes tomorrow and over the coming days.

"We urge anyone planning to travel to, from or via Sheffield, to check before travelling."

Trains from Barnsley Interchange travelling to Nottingham via Meadowhall, Leeds, and Huddersfield have experienced delays or cancellations this morning.
