Rail services on the East Coast Main Line are back under government control, following the failure of the franchise.
Stagecoach and Virgin Trains, which had a 90% and 10% stake in the venture respectively, handed down control on Sunday after running it since 2015.
The Department for Transport will operate the service until a new public-private partnership can be appointed in 2020.
