Cumbria train services running again following lorry crash

Train services on part of the Cumbria coastal rail line have been disrupted for most of the day.

Northern Rail has now confirmed that services are once again running as normal, almost 24 hours since the accident. 

Buses were running between Sellafield and Millom after a lorry struck a bridge at Bootle at about 6pm yesterday.

Passengers had been warned that it would about 30 minutes to their journey times.

Services were due to be back to normal by 1.30pm, but following further delays the line did not reopen until just after 4pm.  Both lines were blocked while engineers carried out repairs at the scene.

No one was injured in the crash.
