Robin Gisby, Network Rail’s managing director of network operations has said work will continue through the night in an attempt to restore normal service by tomorrow.
He said: "We still have more to do tonight to fix the damage caused by the storms but will continue to work throughout the night and are hopeful of running a normal service tomorrow.
“We’re doing everything we can to get people moving but would advise passengers to check with their train operator or National Rail Enquiries for the most up-to-date service information.”
