The PSNI says the train line between Lisburn and Portadown has been closed due to a "continuing security operation" in Lurgan.

Irish Rail says Enterprise services are operating a bus transfer between Newry and Belfast.

Delays of up to 70 minutes are expected on the Dublin Connolly to Belfast service.

While Northern Ireland Railways says passengers can expect disruption until further notice.

Buses have been requested to provide transport for cross-border services.

NI Railway tickets will be accepted on Ulsterbus services operating to/from Lisburn and Portadown during the disruption.
