The landslip near Harbury Tunnel in Warwickshire caused delays and cancellations for most of the weekend

Rail services disrupted by a landslip in Warwickshire have resumed after engineers spent the weekend repairing the damage.

Services between Leamington Spa and Banbury in Oxfordshire were suspended on Friday morning after the landslip near Harbury Tunnel.

Network Rail said a full service was expected to run from Monday morning.

Chiltern Railways and Cross Country routes had been affected.

A Chiltern spokesman said emergency speed restrictions would be in place when services resumed but it was hoped they would not add too much extra time to journeys.

Further work is due to take place on the landslip next weekend.
