Flooding has put the Enterprise train service between Belfast and Dublin off track.

For the second consecutive day on Saturday, passengers have experienced delays as buses are being operated both ways between Belfast Central and Newry and from Lisburn to Portadown and Portadown to Newry.

The Enterprise trains has still been operating between Newry and Dublin but delays can be expected.

As these pictures show, Portadown has been increasingly hit by flooding in the last week. The water has reached the car park of the town’s health centre while a recently opened new jetty at Shillington’s Quay is submerged.

Commuters trying to access the town train station have seen car parking facilities at Wilson Street under water. Walks at the scene Bann Meadows have also been affected.
