PASSENGERS are still suffering at Euston this evening, with only six Virgin trains an hour and a severely reduced service on the London Midland line.

They are being advised to hurry home now because from 9.30pm tonight (Wednesday) as Network Rail is taking over the four lines affected by the fallen power cables and there will be no services between Wembley and Euston.

A spokesman for Network Rail said: "Network Rail specialists will work throughout the day and night to repair the infrastructure with the aim of a full service tomorrow morning.

"Passengers are advised to check with train operators or national rail enquiries before travelling. Network Rail apologises to anyone whose journeys have been disrupted."

The company says it is too early to speculate on the cause of this disruption but has confirmed it does not relate to any of the new infrastructure that was installed as part of the recent West Coast mainline upgrade.
