Trains cancelled as staff shortages continue
STAFF shortages will cause disruption for rail passengers travelling in and out of Worcester this evening.
London Midland has again had to cancel many services due to a lack of qualified train drivers.
This evening’s 7.02pm train from Leamington Spa to Worcester Shrub Hill and the 9.52pm travelling in the opposite direction are among 56 services cancelled or disrupted today.
London Midland says it is working hard to address the problems, but is warning that the situation is unlikely to be resolved until mid-December.
A statement from London Midland advises passengers: “Where there is a significant wait for the next train we will try to provide road transport or stop faster trains at intermediate stations – please listen for announcements or see the information screens on the station.
“However, if your travel plans are flexible, we suggest avoiding the affected times.”
It advises passengers who are delayed for more than 30 minutes that they can claim compensation at londonmidland.com/DelayRepay.
