King's Cross station reopened this morning (04:57) following the completion of late running improvement work north of the station.

Today's planned Sunday timetable for services into and out of King's Cross will run. The first train out of King's Cross will be the booked 0638 service to Peterborough

Robin Gisby, managing director, network operations, Network Rail, said: "King's Cross has reopened this morning following completion of yesterday's late running work.

"I would like to sincerely apologise for the upset and upheaval passengers suffered yesterday as our engineers struggled to complete an essential improvement project that had been months in planning.

"The advertised Sunday timetable for King's Cross will run today as train operators work to get people home who we're unable to travel yesterday.

"We now move our focus to completing the handful of other projects still underway without further impact on passengers. We will also begin our investigation into what went wrong with the work at Holloway (north of King's Cross) and the planning that went into this project."
