West Midlands Railway has reported that train services to and from London Euston will be severely disrupted today due to overhead line damage.
Hundreds of metres of overhead power lines require repair in the South Kenston area north of London.
This disruption will impact all train services between London Euston and the West Midlands and the North West of England.
No train services will be leaving London Euston after 2100 tonight to allow Network Rail access to make repairs throughout the night.
Due to the overnight closures, Monday Morning services may also be affected.

What Did The Officials Say?
A spokesman for London Northwestern Railway said
“There is significant damage to overhead electric wires. This severely limits the train services we can run today and this will affect Monday morning commuters too. We have arranged ticket acceptance with other train operators and we are doing all we can to keep people moving but we have limited capacity and there will be disruption. We encourage anyone delayed by 15 minutes or more to claim compensation. Details can be found on our website at LNR.uk”
