Network Rail is advising passengers of disruption to services between Abergavenny and Cwmbran after signalling cables were stolen on Sunday night.

It says engineers have been working day and night on the task of replacing the stolen cable in the Little Mill area.

Emergency signalling arrangements will be in place until work is completed, which is expected to be tomorrow morning.

Patrols are being conducted and specialist cable theft officers are carrying out enquiries in the area to find those responsible for the theft, which has resulted in ongoing delays, disruption and inconvenience to passengers and the rail industry, while we continue to work closely with scrap metal dealers to identify those that deal in stolen metal.

– DI Jaci Stephens, British Transport Police

Cable theft is not a victimless crime – far from it. Train delays and cancellations directly affect people going about their daily lives, such as getting to and from work, visiting family and travelling to hospital appointments...

...Trespassing on the railway is extremely dangerous and cable thieves risk serious injury or death. We want everyone home safe every day and we continually look for ways to protect the network from thieves, working with British Transport Police to prosecute anyone caught carrying out metal thefts.
