'I was stranded at King's Cross'

Passengers on the East Coast main line are facing major delays between London and Peterborough.

About 200 travellers were left stranded at London's King's Cross station overnight after the last train to Leeds was cancelled.

The problems have been caused by power lines in St Neots, Cambridgeshire.

Speaking to James Naughtie, passenger Simon Lilley explained how he was stranded in London.
