Settle-Carlisle Line closed, Tuesday 25th Sept

Heavy rain overnight has caused flooding in Stainforth Tunnel and in the Smardale area, leading to cancellation of all northbound trains as at 9 am. 
 
At Smardale the down line is blocked by 300 yards of floodwater.  There is a report of a landslip affecting the up line.
 
if it's any consolation the East Coast Main Line is also blocked.
