Lichfield train services cancelled after overhead wire problems on the cross city line

Trains from Lichfield faced delays today (July 3) following electrical problems.

Power had to be turned off to the cross city line meaning services to and from Lichfield Trent Valley and Lichfield City stations were cancelled.

Trains were disrupted for around six hours before engineers completed repairs at around 5.45pm.

National Rail said overhead wire issues were to blame.
