Rail problems to continue for the rest of the day

Commuters trying to get from Milton Keynes and Northampton to the capital are facing rail delays after a problem with overhead powerlines. Replacement buses had to take passengers on to Wellingborough to get connections into London.

Richard Brooks from London Midland said: "We're doing everything we can and there's lots of people within the industry working very hard to minimise the disruption. I would say the disruption will carry on until the end of today."
