Great Western Railway services have been suspended between Gloucester and Swindon because of a signalling problem.

The company is working to arrange a bus replacement service.

During incidents like this, trains would normally divert via Yate and Bristol Parkway.

However, this route is also closed due to engineering work.

GWR says trains should be running by 12.00 and commuters can find updates on the National Rail website.
