THE main entrance to Taunton train station has been closed off after the main doors were damaged in what is believed to be a ram raid. 

Staff at the train station, which is based just off Station Road in Taunton, closed off the main entrance this morning (August 24) as the doors have been smashed and damaged by vandals.

The spokesperson said: "We were called at 4.11am this morning (August 24) after a report from a member of the public who heard a loud bang outside Taunton station.
