TRAINS are being delayed and cancelled between Worcester and Bromsgrove due to a signalling system fault.

Morning commuters have been forced to used replacement bus services following the issue, which began at 8.17am today and is expected to last all day according to Network Rail.

The fault originated in Droitwich but is causing disruption for trains coming into and leaving Worcester Foregate and Shrub Hill stations.

Network Rail has told customers they may be entitled to compensation and so to keep hold of any train ticket and make a note of your journey.
