They had there was no timescale as to when then the problem would be fixed, and said their engineers would advise when they find the cause of the problem.
However, the company's twitter account has now confirmed that trains are now running between the stations, however they are subject to delays of up to 15 minutes.
Elsewhere on the system, there are no trains between Benton and Monkseaton, due to planned works.
