Trains between Sheffield and London are set to be disrupted for between four to six weeks because of a landslide near Chesterfield.

East Midlands Trains are running an hourly service, at nine minutes past the hour from Sheffield, on a diversionary route that extends journey times by up to 20 minutes. All other services between Sheffield and London will start and terminate at Derby, ensuring two trains an hour.

One of two tracks through Unstone needs to be repaired by Network Raill after a landslip on a hillside caused by heavy rain.
