Metro passengers in South Tyneside are suffering disruption this morning after a train was withdrawn from service.
There are delays in the service of up to 20 minutes between Tyne Dock station and Longbenton, in Newcastle.
A train has been withdrawn because of what Metro describes as a 'brake fault'.
Metro said in a tweet: "We have a gap in the service of up to 20 minutes to trains running between Tyne Dock and Longbenton due to a train being withdrawn due to a brake fault.
"We are running a good service in all other areas of the system."
