There is disruption to railway services in Staffordshire this afternoon – Sunday February 23 – due to animals on the line.
Avanti West Coast say lines are blocked and train services diverted due to the unspecified creatures between Stoke-on-Trent and Lichfield Trent Valley Railway Station.
The company, that runs services from the Potteries to London, said: “Due to animals on the railway between Lichfield Trent Valley Ll and Stoke-On-Trent all lines will be blocked.
“Train services running through these stations may be diverted via Stafford. Disruption is expected until 17:00 23/02.”
The issues were first reported shortly before 4pm.
