THE Cross City line between Birmingham New Street, Longbridge, Redditch and Bromsgrove is finally back open after fallen trees were removed.

Two trees have fell onto the line, badly damaging overhead power lines near University station.

All services were cancelled as a result but the work to amend the issue is now complete.

A spokesman said: "As you may now be aware, the CrossCity South line has reopened following the landslip and tree removal.

"Services are back up and running now, sorry we have welcomed the rain along with it.

"Thank you all for your continued patience during the closure."
