A broken down freight train which caused delays to rail passengers earlier today (Tuesday) has been cleared.

The train stopped on the line at Stamford just after midday. As a result, no trains were able to run between Oakham and Peterborough during part of the afternoon.

National Rail said a rescue locomotive was sent to move the stricken train and services are now running on time.
