RAIL services between Taunton and Bristol are facing delays and cancellations because of a ‘trespasser’ on the line.

Network Rail and CrossCounty trains are urging passengers to check services before attempting to travel.

A commuter has told the County Gazette: “I've just got on my train and it is being diverted to Westbury before it goes to Bristol.

“Apparently there are trespassers on the line police can't apprehend. The announcer said it effects all trains from Taunton at the moment.”
