Kings Cross train station is closed over the August bank holiday weekend. Network Rail – who are upgrading tracks outside the station as part of a £1billion upgrade of the line – are advising passengers against travel that weekend because of “severe disruption”.

It is the first time in 20 years that the Peterborough to London stretch of the East Coast Main Line will completely shut down for improvements.

Train operator LNER said: “Customers are advised to travel on the Thursday, Friday and Tuesday for this weekend.”
