Buses will replace trains between Nottingham, Newark Castle and Lincoln until at least Friday because of a derailed freight train.

The train was derailed in Carlton the day after nearby Nottingham station reopened following five weeks of track and signal work.

As well as replacement buses there will be additional trains between Lincoln and Newark Northgate.

Timetables are available on the East Midlands Trains website.

The track is being repaired, and East Midlands Trains said it was taking advice from Network Rail on when normal services can resume.

Until then, buses are running in both directions between Lincoln and Nottingham, calling at Newark Castle and Newark Northgate.

Buses are also running in both directions between Nottingham and Newark Northgate, calling at Newark Castle, Rolleston, Fiskerton, Bleasby, Thurgarton, Lowdham, Burton Joyce and Carlton.

Road closures around Carlton Station mean that buses will stop at the bus stop near the junction between Meadow Road and Victoria Road, outside the NatWest bank.
