Rail line reopens after Hatfield Colliery landslip

A railway line has reopened five months after a huge landslip pushed up the track in South Yorkshire.

The spoil heap at Hatfield Colliery in Stainforth collapsed in February, forcing the line to shut.

Passengers on services between Doncaster, Scunthorpe and Cleethorpes had to use rail replacement buses while repair work was carried out by Network Rail and Hargreaves Services, which runs the colliery.

A reduced service began again on the line at 05:00 BST. The full timetable is expected to run from 29 July.
