Train derailed in Leicestershire
A freight train carrying thousands of tonnes of quarry stone has been derailed, blocking two local rail lines between Loughborough and Barrow-upon-Soar.
The incident occurred shortly before 5.30am today, and involved a train travelling from Buxton, in Derbyshire, to Ely, in Cambridgeshire.
Trains are still able to use two other lines in the area, but are not stopping at Barrow-upon-Soar station.
East Midlands Trains is operating a replacement bus service between Barrow-upon-Soar and Loughborough.
Nobody was injured in the derailment.
Network Rail said the cause was being investigated.
