We are advising football fans travelling to and from Nottingham for matches tomorrow not to attempt to use trains to travel.

This is due to the ongoing emergency response to the fire at Nottingham railway station.

The station is unlikely to be open by tomorrow, and if it does open, there will not be a full service operating.

Therefore we are asking people to make alternative travel arrangements.

Supt Sandra England said: “Due to the ongoing emergency response to the fire at Nottingham railway station, there are unlikely to be trains running to and from the station tomorrow. Even if some trains are running by tomorrow, there will be an extremely limited service with many delays, cancellations and overcrowding.

“Rather than taking a chance and heading to the station to pack yourself onto a crowded train,  or worse, find that you can’t travel at all, please make alternative travel arrangements in advance.

“We want everyone to be able to get to the football without the stress of a difficult journey. Please start making alternative travel plans now so that you can enjoy your weekend.”
