There is less than a month to go until what's being called the biggest train timetable shake-up in UK history.

The times of every Thameslink route will change - affecting passengers in Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire - and almost a million journeys every day.

The new timetables are being introduced from Sunday 20 May.

Bosses say they are the biggest timetable changes "for a generation" and part of wider changes to timetables across the south east.

The timetable changes are bringing more trains on many routes. They are also introducing new routes and bringing direct trains between new destinations.

The resulting changes to train times will affect the whole network, including Thameslink, Southern, Great Northern, Gatwick Express and Southeastern trains.

Rail bosses are urging passengers to check how their journeys will change.

New timetables and information about each route will be published on the RailPlan20/20 website.
