A power problem has led to the cancellation of services between Airport and Kingston Park.

The trouble on the system had been caused by a problem with the power supply, which meant there had been no services between the Airport and the Kingston Park in both directions as the day began.

The service has said trains are now running between those stations, but with up to 15 minute delays due to an ongoing problem with the power supply.

Taxis and buses had been drafted in to help people reach their destinations.

Go North East are accepting tickets on the 42 and 42A services.
