Alcohol will be banned on today's London Midland trains to and from Aston Villa's FA Cup Semi-Final at Wembley against Liverpool.

There will be some extra stops at Wembley Central on a number of services departing from Birmingham.

Because these trains will be busy, the alternative is to change trains at Harrow and Wealdstone station and catch London Overground rail services to Wembley Central.

There are also no London Midland trains between Redditch and Birmingham New Street until 11:27. If you need to travel into the city, rail replacement bus services are in place.

After the game, the following London Midland trains will call at Wembley Central for onward travel to Birmingham:

  • 1725
  • 1804
  • 1825
  • 1904
  • 1925
  • 2004
  • 2025


Dare to dream? PM excited by Aston Villa's semi-final

On a visit to Solihull to make an announcement on jobs as part of the Conservatives' election campaign, the Prime Minister David Cameron said he was looking forward to Aston Villa's FA Cup semi-final at Wembley tomorrow.

Villa beat local rivals West Bromwich Albion to reach Wembley, and recorded an important win at Tottenham Hotspur last weekend to give their Premier League survival hopes a boost.
