Cables make a break for it at St Neots

There’s more chaos in the Home Counties as overhead cable failures at St Neots bring the East Coast line to a standstill. Here are the best of the tweets:

  4. Train just left Kings Cross…no one knows – including 14 East Coast Staff on board where we go from Peterborough #stneots #headlesschickens
  5. You know things are bad when Leeds Bradford airport tweeting people to remind them that BA fly to London #StNeots
