London-bound commuters in Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire have faced rail delays this morning (Monday, February 7).
Network Rail reduced the speed of trains in Cambridgeshire between Peterborough and St Neots to urgently replace a section of track.
This caused disruption between Peterborough and Stevenage, with delays of up to 15 minutes for Thameslink, Great Northern and long-distance trains on the route.
The works have since been completed.
A Thameslink statement reads: "The fault has been rectified and we can run normally again between Peterborough and St Neots."
The company had previously said: "Services are experiencing delays of up to 15 minutes between Peterborough and St Neots.
"This is impacting London-bound services.
