    08:42: More on Ebola test

    It is thought it is "unlikely" that two young patients being tested at a hospital in Newcastle for Ebola will return a positive result.

    They are in the Infectious Diseases Isolation Unit at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, one of three units outside London geared up to care for patients with infectious diseases such as Ebola.

    A spokesperson for Public Health England in the North East said: "Due to uncertainty about where in Africa the children are from and when they arrived in the UK, as a precaution the children are being tested for Ebola and malaria. However, the clinical and Public Health England risk assessment is that Ebola is unlikely."

    There are delays on East Coast mainline trains as overhead wire problems near Doncaster are causing major disruption to journeys between Peterborough and Doncaster, but having a knock-on effect throughout the North East.
