Travel headache for Christmas train commuters

Rail services across the country remain in disarray today, causing a headache for Christmas commuters and those who were unable to make journeys yesterday because of the floods.

First Great Western is advising passengers not to attempt to travel in the South West following disruptions to a number of services, National Rail said on its website.

Passengers on First Great Western trains with tickets from yesterday will be able to use them today or tomorrow.
