A number of scheduled journeys to Penzance, Plymouth and Exeter St David’s have been cancelled, while trains to Abbey Wood, Swansea and Bristol Temple Meads are delayed.
This is largely due to flooding in Taunton and between Bristol Parkway and Swindon.
There are some cancellations on trains to Wrexham General, Crewe and Birmingham New Street, as well as minor delays on some journeys to Liverpool Lime Street, Manchester Piccadilly and Glasgow Central.
This is due to a signal error between Tamworth and Stafford.
