Metro services are back up and running after problems between Sunderland and Pelaw.

Trains were suspended this morning due to a problem on the stretch of line into Sunderland which is maintained by Network Rail.

A shuttle service was put in place between Sunderland and South Hylton, with Go North East buses accepting Metro tickets for passengers going to and from other destinations.

Transport executive Nexus has now confirmed services are back in operation as of 11.05am.
