Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson has thanked passengers and apologised for ongoing disrupted services on rail networks, as flooding continues to hamper transport.
Sir Richard said in a statement on their website: "I want to thank all of our passengers in the UK for their kindness and patience during some understandably disrupted services. I’m very sorry for the delays and hope everyone is coping as well as can be expected.
"It must be extremely difficult for everyone being affected by the dreadful weather and horrendous flooding.
"In particular, having your home flooded is a traumatic experience, and I’d point everyone to the Somerset Community Fund, which is collecting money for some of those worst affected."
