Colliery landslip suspends rail services

A massive landslide caused by the collapse of a slag heap at a colliery in South Yorkshire means rail services in the area will be disrupted for months.

Train services between Doncaster, Scunthorpe and Cleethorpes will be suspended for at least eight weeks.

Network Rail said the collapse at Hatfield Colliery at Stainforth, South Yorkshire, was pushing up the track.

Paul Lead reports.
