Repair work halts South Gosforth Metro service

The Metro service between South Gosforth and North Shields has been suspended for a day for repair work.

Nexus, which runs the service, said trains had been halted on Sunday to allow engineers to safely carry out cable and lift modernisation work.

A bus replacement service is operating and passengers have been urged to allow more time for their journeys.

Nexus apologised for any inconvenience caused and said a normal service would resume on Monday.
