Among those affected by the travel disruption because of the storms is Olympic diver Tom Daley.
The 19-year-old revealed that his mother had to pick him up from London after his train to Bristol had been cancelled, during a conversation with Little Britain star Matt Lucas on Twitter.
Not cool to cancel trains at Xmas :(
@tomdaley1994 At this point folk will be about to respond with either ‘Come to mine’ or ‘Why don’t you swim there?’. Just letting you know.
@realmattlucas I opted for the mother coming to pick me up! :) ha from Bristol anyway :/ I'm headed for the west country!!!
