Nature's sense of irony

It's a punishment of course. Hubris, arrogance, whatever. But the day after the big announcement of a high speed railway line, we get this:

East Coast is advising all of its passengers not to travel today, as all train services to and from London King's Cross have been suspended for the rest of the day, due to damage to overhead power lines at Huntingdon, near Peterborough.

East Coast is also advising all passengers who have arrived at King's Cross to go home and restart their journeys tomorrow.

Apparently the trains on the high speed line will be able to not go at 250 mph.
