TRAINS have been cancelled after people were spotted on the tracks near Colne.

Trespassers on the railway line have forced trains to run at reduced speeds, and cancelled two services.

The 14.26 from Preston to Ormskirk was cancelled due to the disruption, forcing Northern to cancel the 15.01 return service too.

Passengers on the 13.11 service from Colne to Preston were held in place for at least 30 minutes, delaying their arrival until 14.50 at the earliest.

Service is expected to return to normal shortly.
