The service Tweeted this morning that signalling problems in the Fawdon area of Newcastle meant services were unable to operate in either direction between Kingston Park and the Airport.

The issue has now been addressed but the problem has caused knock-on delays between the Airport and Park Lane.

Metro is currently operating a temporary timetable on the line due to ongoing engineering work to repair damage caused by flooding between Park Lane and South Hylton.
