Rail passengers on routes in Sheffield and Chesterfield face longer journeys and some cancellations from tomorrow following a landslip on the train tracks.

The hillside above the railway line through Unstone, Derbyshire, became unstable in the recent extremely wet weather, meaning one of the two tracks has had to be closed for safety reasons.

It is expected to remain closed for four to six weeks.
