Yesterday afternoon we had an electrical fire in a lineside equipment room at Acton which damaged equipment which meant we have not been able to run a full service today. Services to and from Paddington have been affected by this.

The run-up to Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year for traffic so any bad weather can have a big impact on the roads. Even if you know your local roads, don't be complacent, as flash flooding is a real risk with so much water around.
Keep tuned to local weather forecasts from the Met Office and travel reports and if it's bad where you are, only travel if it's essential. If you do head out, allow more time for your journey as you don't want to rush in conditions like this.
