Those travelling by train through Swindon are being faced with disruption as the Met Office issues an amber weather warning for the county.

Great Western Railway (GWR) has said services across the whole of its network will be delayed and disruption can be expected until 6am tomorrow (Monday, January 22).

This comes as an amber weather warning has been issued for Swindon and Wiltshire.

Speed restrictions are expected between Bristol Temple Meads and Chippenham which may have an effect on trains through Swindon.

An incident in which a person was hit by a train between London Paddington and Reading yesterday (Saturday, January 20) impacted trains with some being cancelled and delayed this morning.

Disruptions are still expected until noon today despite lines between Didcot Parkway and Bath Spa, as well as Bristol Parkway, following engineering work overrunning. 

A spokesperson for Great Western Railway said: “Storm Isha is expected to bring extreme winds across the Great Western Railway network on Sunday evening, reaching up to 70mph in places.

"We recognise customers may wish to travel earlier, and tickets for Sunday evening will be valid throughout the day.

"Depending on the severity of the storm, other areas of the network may also be affected until Monday morning. Please check before you travel."
