Trains hit by signalling problems

Rail passengers endured Monday morning travel woes today with a number of commuter services suffering delays.

The worst of the difficulties was at Fratton in Portsmouth where a signalling problem led to delays to trains to Wales and to the London stations of Victoria and Waterloo.

Passengers travelling with the First Great Western, South West Trains and Southern train companies were affected by this problem, with some travellers experiencing delays of up to 60 minutes.

Services into another major London station - Paddington - were also held up, by a signalling problem at Maidenhead in Berkshire.

"This has been another miserable morning for commuters with services into London wrecked yet again."
