This is disrupting trains on the Leicester, Lincoln and Grimsby route and the Matlock, Nottingham and Newark Castle route.

A new system which will notify passengers about disruption to their journeys using Facebook messages is being trialled in Leicestershire and Rutland.
East Midlands Trains, which is piloting the scheme, said it was "critically important" travellers received information about their journey.
Emma Davis, from the company, said: "What customers want to know... is, ‘Am I going to get information about anything that potentially could go wrong?’"
People on the railway line between Mansfield and Nottingham are causing disruption.
Police are at the scene, according to East Midlands Trains.
"Some of our trains on the route will be cancelled and some will start and terminate at Newstead," a message on the operator's website said.
If your daily commute involves passing through Derby railway station, you'll have noticed some major work is under way today.
A £200m upgrade of Derby station has started which is set to disrupt rail services through the East Midlands until October.
Network Rail said passengers would "benefit from a more modern and reliable railway" when work to improve track and signalling is completed and journey times will decrease.
However, about 80% of trains are being replaced with buses for those travelling to and from Derby.
Rail bosses said journey times would decrease following the work.
It's affecting Cross Country and East Midlands Trains routes, who've been running rail replacement services.
Earlier this morning Cross Country tweeted it's all been "running smoothly".
