The damage caused by the land slip at Hatfield Colliery.

THE rail disruption caused by a landslip at Hatfield Colliery will be debated by MPs today.

Ministers are to discuss extra measures to limit the impact of the rail disruption which has been caused by the blockage, which is set to keep the tracks closed between Doncaster and Scunthorpe until the summer.

It has also affected the stations in the Isle of Axholme villages of Crowle and Althorpe.

Ministers are to be pressed for more action over the continued disruption to North Lincolnshire’s train services.

Cleethorpes MP Martin Vickers has secured the debate with the Transport Minister because of his concerns over the effect the disruption is having on the economy of North Lincolnshire.

At present, bus replacement services are taking passengers between Doncaster and Scunthorpe.
