Rail services have been suspended after a train derailed in Cornwall.

It happened on the branchline between Liskeard and Looe early on Friday morning.

It means no trains are currently running as the line is blocked.

Officials say disruption is expected until the end of the day.

"A low speed derailment between Liskeard and Looe means that all lines are blocked between these stations.

"It is currently expected that trains will be unable to operate in either direction until the end of the day."

People are being advised to check before they travel.

"Service suspended on Great Western Railway between Liskeard and Looe due to a low speed derailment."

It comes just weeks after another train derailed on the Truro to Falmouth branch line.

Passengers were on board when that happened and it caused disruption for several days.
