A multi-million pound competition to run rail services through the Thames Valley has been scrapped. Instead, First Great Western who currently run the franchise on the Great Western Mainline will continue to run trains for up to another three years.
Southern and First Capital Connect's franchises in Surrey and Sussex are also being delayed.
Service has been suspended on Southern Rail services between Caterham and Purley due to emergency engineering works at Kenley. Replacement buses are currently unavailable. There is no estimate for when normal service will resume.
