Severe disruption for train commuters today in West Midlands region after fire

Solihull Editorial 15th Sep, 2017   0

RAIL COMMUTERS in the West Midlands region are facing major disruption this morning due to fire in London north of Euston station.

Services have been affected on the West Coast Main Line which runs between London and Birmingham and beyond, also stopping at Coventry station.

The problems are expected to last throughout the day.

Trains were completely suspended between London and Milton Keynes, leading to severe disruption for commuters further north on the line, and for passengers on other lines.

A Network Rail spokesperson said: “Owing to a fire in a commercial property next to the railway line near Harrow, train services between Watford Junction and London Euston are not running.

“Passengers wanting to travel on the West Coast Main Line are urged to check with their train operator or before travelling as disruption and cancellations are to be expected throughout the day.

“The safety of passengers and staff is our priority. We are working with our partners at London Midlands, Southern, Virgin Trains West Coast, Caledonian Sleeper and the emergency services to update passengers as when more information becomes available.”
