COMMUTERS in Yatton are getting frustrated that a station service is not running as it used to.

The parish council decided at its monthly meeting on Monday night to write to train giant First Great Western to ask why the office, where advance and season tickets can be bought, is no longer open full-time.

Parish councillor Faith Moulin said: "We are going to say that although we are pleased to see more staff back there, it is inconvenient to travellers when the booking office is closed.

"They need to buy a ticket before they catch a train but the machines only sell them for that day.
