Trains were stuck in the area due to the problems which also meant the crossing had to be closed.

There was congestion on surrounding roads as traffic diverted around the level crossing.

A statement on the National Rail website says: “Damage to the overhead electric wires between Grantham and Peterborough has resulted in all lines being blocked.

"Consequently, trains between these stations may be cancelled.

"Major disruption between Grantham and Peterborough [is] expected until 16:00."

LNER are advising their customers not to travel today.

They said: "Your tickets dated for travel today, Wednesday, July 10, will be valid for travel tomorrow, Thursday, July 11.

"If you're not able to travel tomorrow, you'll be entitled to a refund."

Rail operators have apologised to customers and said alternative routes are available.

There has been a long-running campaign to get the crossing replaced with a bridge.
