A railway line that has been closed for five months because of a landslip has reopened.

The landslip at Hatfield Colliery in Stainforth, South Yorkshire, in February pushed the track upward.

Passengers on services between Doncaster, Scunthorpe and Cleethorpes were forced on to buses while repair work was carried out.

A reduced service began again on the line at 05:00 BST. The full timetable is expected to run from 29 July.

Northern Rail is running an hourly service, with additional rail replacement buses. First TransPennine Express is operating a full timetable.

Interim timetables have been published and passengers have been asked to check the rail operators' websites for the latest information.
