Rush-hour rail problems that plagued passengers on many days in November continued for commuters in the South West on the first working day of December.
Travellers whose services were still affected by last week's floods were hit by a combination of difficulties including late-running engineering work. The aftermath of the floods continued to hit services in devon, with buses replacing trains on some routes.
Replacement buses are running on First Great Western Services between Exeter St Davids and Crediton due to flooding. But the good news is that the Tarka line has now re-opened between Crediton and Barnstaple following major work on the track.
