Train passengers are being urged to check before travelling on Monday, February 21, as the remnants of Storm Franklin cause widespread chaos in the region.

A yellow weather warning remains in place for Nottinghamshire with gusts expected to reach as high as 53mph this morning.

The high winds caused flooding in some areas of the county on Sunday and have come after the recent storms Eunice and Dudley.

In a message to commuters, a spokesperson for East Midlands Railway said: “Storm Franklin is expected to cause delays and cancellations across the EMR network on Monday 21 February.

“We strongly encourage you to check before you travel and consider postponing your journey to later in the day or Tuesday 22 February if possible.”

The weather is also having an impact on some people wanting to use the tram, as the Queens Drive park and ride site will remain closed today “due to rising water levels”. Commuters are advised the Racecourse park and ride can be used as an alternative.

Flood warnings have also been issued for some areas on the Nottinghamshire border.
