Britain’s beleaguered rail passengers continued to face delays and cancellations across the network today, the morning after the latest train strike.

Overrunning engineering works caused disruption for commuters using Chiltern Railways services between London Marylebone and Birmingham Moor Street.

The same issue also affected West Midlands Railway trains between Stratford-upon-Avon, Birmingham Snow Hill, Leamington Spa and Worcester Foregate Street.

Meanwhile a shortage of train crew hit Thameslink services between Sutton and St Albans, and Southern trains between Clapham Junction and Watford Junction.

Great Western Railway trains were delayed by a points failure between Bristol Temple Meads and Severn Beach. And c2c reported that a train fault at Limehouse meant the line was blocked, with other London-bound trains not able to get past West Ham.
