STORM DORIS: London Midland advising people not to travel
London Midland has lifted ticket restrictions so that passengers can delay their journeys and travel tomorrow (Friday 24 February).
While high winds are affecting rail services across the region London Midland train tickets can be used on any of the following services:
Chiltern Trains between Stourbridge - Kidderminster - Leamington - London Marylebone
Cross Country between Reading - Birmingham - Manchester - Nottingham
Arriva Trains Wales between Birmingham - Chester - Shrewsbury
Merseyrail between Liverpool South Parkway - Liverpool - Chester
East Midlands Train between Stoke-on-Trent and Crewe
Southern between Milton Keynes - Watford - Shepherds Bush
NXWM [ National Express West Midlands] on all routes.
London Buses between Watford - London Euston
London Overground between Watford - London Euston - Shepherds Bush
A 50 mile per hour speed restriction is now in place across the network until at least 1600 hours.
This means fewer trains can run and some journeys will take longer to complete. Individual lines are being blocked by falling trees and debris. The Cross City Line between Birmingham and Lichfield is unlikely to re-open today.
