Following the earlier incident where a passenger was hit by a train, the lines between Rugby and Milton Keynes Central have reopened. Although the emergency services have safely finished their operation, trains may still experience delays, cancellations, or revisions for up to 30 minutes as the system recovers.

Affected route or routes:

Between Edinburgh, Glasgow Central, Lancaster, Blackpool North, Manchester Piccadilly, Liverpool Lime Street, Chester, Holyhead, Shrewsbuty, Wolverhampton, Birmingham New Street, and London Euston is the Avanti West Coast.

Between Crewe, Birmingham New Street, Rugby, Milton Keynes Central, and London Euston is the London Northwestern Railway.

Up to 3pm, there is anticipated to be disruptions between Milton Keynes and Rugby.

After searching the school, police have now returned it to personnel. Parents will get updates from the school on the reopening schedule.

“We appreciate the concern and disruption caused to students, staff, and the local community, and I would like to thank you all for your patience and understanding,” stated Chief Inspector Faz Chishty, South Warwickshire’s local policing commander.

“Staff and student safety is always our top priority, and I want to congratulate them for their excellent response.

“We are now confident that it is safe for employees and students to return to the building after a search of the area. Parents will receive updates from the school regarding the reopening schedule, so please heed their instructions.

We have come to our attention that a different message is being extensively disseminated by parents and workers on social media and messaging apps. We don’t think there is any risk involved and aren’t connecting this to the initial threat against the school.

“To give staff, students, and parents peace of mind, we will continue to have a significant police presence in the neighbourhood in the coming days. Speak with one of my officers if you have any issues.
