West Coast Mainline disruption

Travellers are urged to prepare for delays and cancellations Credit: Network Rail

Some services on the West Coast Mainline are disrupted because of a line side fire near Wembley. All services between Milton Keynes Central and London Euston are currently suspended - this is also causing delays for those travelling north.

Travellers are urged to check with their train operator or before making journey arrangements.

West Coast Main line will stay with Virgin

It's been confirmed that Virgin will continue to operate the West Coast Main line. Their contract has been extended for a further two years and nine months.

The announcement follows on from a two year controversy surrounding who had the rights to operate the line. The governement had awarded it to First Group but "significant technical flaws" in the bidding process meant bidding had to be re-opened.

Mike Hewitson, Head of Policy for Passenger Focus, spoke to ITV's Ian Payne about the deal.
