TAUNTON Station has been hit by several train cancellations and timetable changes this morning due to a signalling fault.

A number of passengers have complained about having to miss or rearrange appointments.

Great Western Railway has posted a message on screens on the platforms to inform customers of the problem.

It says: "Special Notices: Services at Taunton are being disrupted due to a signalling problem.

"Short notice alterations or cancellations and delays can be expected."

One disgruntled rail traveller heading to a meeting in Burnham-on-Sea said: "I've had two trains cancelled and had to put back the meeting.

"Hopefully the next train will run as normal."
