Heard on twitter that fireman injured and taken to hospital after tunnel blowback. Been waiting 90 mins for it to pass Oakham
Hope the guy is Ok

I assume the
tour will have been cancelled?

AIUI from comments from others while waiting for it at Alexandra Palace, the ecs was held up on the NLL by engineering work. This caused a change of plan to board the passengers at Finsbury Park. The special never went to KX, but when it did come past Ally Pally around 11.10 (about 90 min late) Oliver Cromwell was going well, vigorously blowing off steam, but piloted by a WCRC class 47.

I hope nothing further untoward has happened and that nobody has been hurt, but if what you heard on twitter is correct it must have happened further north.
