Bristol-Bath train line reopens

Network Rail says train services between Bristol Temple Meads and Bath Spa stations are returning to normal after a week of engineering work. The line only reopened at 0558, much later than planned. Network Rail says they have finished lowering the track to prepare for electrification, but will have to fix a set of points at another time.
