Metro disruption resolved after power dip
Metro delays have now been resolved after a power dip earlier today.
People travelling on the South Shields to St James line suffered delays to their journey this morning as a result of a power supply problem in the Benton area.
Nexus, the operator of the Tyne and Wear Metro service, has now confirmed that trains are running to timetable.
A Nexus spokesman said: “There were delays to services this morning due to a power supply problem in the Benton area.
"This caused issues with signals that needed to be reset and this meant there were delays.
"Services continued to operate to all destinations, but not to timetable.
"This issue has now been resolved.”
