Great Western Railway (GWR) is advising people not to travel today (Sunday), with snow forcing cancellations, delays and revisions.

Heavy snow hit the West Country last night, affecting transport services across the region.

And GWR is advising people not to travel, as services may be cancelled and replacement bus provisions will not be provided.

A spokesman said: “Due to severe weather fewer trains are able to run and disruption is expected until the end of the day.

“Due to heavy snow overnight across the GWR network, some services are expected to be cancelled, delayed or revised.

“Customers are advised not to travel as where trains are cancelled road transport will not be provided due to the poor road conditions.

“Note also that road transport previously advertised to operate in place of rail services in connection with improvement works is unlikely to be able to operate and subject to delay, cancellation and curtailment at short notice.

“Customers with unused tickets dated for today are able to use their tickets tomorrow (Monday).”
