The power failure in the Swindon area has brought rush-hour trains between London, the Thames Valley, Wales & the Westcountry to a standstill. ITV News journalist, Guy Phillips, is one of thousands of passengers affected. He's just sent us this update.
The 7.11 from Reading to Swansea has been at a standstill at Didcot Parkway for 40 minutes due to amajor power failure. The guard on the train tells us "There is major signalling problems due an electrical fault. The only information we have is to stay here until it has been resolved."
It's been another day of disruption and delays for travellers in the west - once again it's train passengers feeling the pain. A landslip at Westerleigh Junction on the outskirts of Bristol is the latest cause of misery.
It's meant a reduced service through Bristol Parkway with buses laid on to ferry people to local stations. The Transport Secretary Patrick McLaughlin visited the site this afternoon to see the damage for himself.
If you've been driving today or trying to get anywhere by train, the chances are the horrific weather would have affected your journey.
Trains to the east between Swindon and Bristol Parkway, London Paddington and Bristol Temple Meads, and westwards between Plymouth and Temple Meads have either been cancelled or delayed because of flooding on the line.
