Fallen tree delays trains between Worcester and Cheltenham
TRAINS have been delayed by more than an hour after a tree fell on the line between Worcester Shrub Hill and Cheltenham.
A large conifer tree had fallen on the track causing a blockage betweenCheltenham and Abbottswood Junction.
Three Cross Country services were at a standstill but engineers are on site working to re-open the lines as soon as possible.
A Network Rail spokesperson said: "The driver working a CrossCountry Cardiff to Nottingham service reported a fallen tree near to Abbotswood Junction (north of Cheltenham) which blocked the down line and obscured the up line.
"Offtrack staff attended and removed the tree but delays were caused to CrossCountry services from Birmingham to Bristol and the West and to First Great Western services between Worcester and Bristol."
