and alternative options were sourced to cover the following stations:

As of 11.56am, the problems caused by the signalling fault are resolved and services are slowly returning to normal. Customers are still advised to continue to check live journey planners and listen to announcements on the platform, however, since there may still be delays and last minute changes to affected services.
