‘Tragic incident’ results in closure of NI railway line

The main railway line between Belfast and Lisburn has been closed after what the authorities have described as a “tragic incident”.

Translink is working towards putting on a substitute bus service but told passengers their train tickets would be accepted on Metro and Ulsterbus services for this specific route.
