There are delays on the Tyne and Wear Metro system for passengers this morning.

Trains between Sunderland and Newcastle have been affected by the problems, which are due to a failed train.

There is an approximately 15 minute service, in both directions, between St James in Newcastle and South Shields stations.

The @My_Metro account tweeted: "Trains are not running to timetable."
