METRO passengers are experiencing delays after a fault on the travel service’s CCTV system.
Train lines between Newcastle, Sunderland and South Shields have been affected by the problem, which has now been repaired.
A spokesman for Metro said a “technical fault” on the CCTV system which allows train drivers to monitor station platforms caused the disruption.
Trains on the South Shields line are now running normally – every 12 minutes – but not to schedule.
And there is still a slight delay from Newcastle to Sunderland, with trains running every 15 minutes, instead of 12.
Delays are expected to be rectified by about 3.30pm, in time for rush hour.
A spokesman for Metro, said: “We apologise to passengers for any inconvenience caused.”
