Thousands of passengers faced hours of delays getting home this evening after a lightening strike in Staines caused trains to be cancelled.

South West trains from Waterloo to Reading, Weybridge, Windor, Hounslow and Feltham were all affected among others.

Tickets are being accepted on Great Western Railway, London Underground and replacement bus services.

South West said passengers should check its incident page on its website before travelling.
