The Flying Scotsman's visit to Worcester on Saturday, February 19 has been cancelled due to the ongoing effects of Storm Eunice.

The famous locomotive had been due to bring daytrippers to Shrub Hill, and was sure to draw an excited crowd of onlookers to the station.

But widespread disruption on the railways has seen the trip cancelled.

Tour operator The Railway Touring Company posted an update on its website at 8.30pm on Friday saying: "Due to ongoing issues across the rail network, Network Rail have this evening advised of their decision to cancel this train."

Network Rail's website warns that Storm Eunice has caused "severe disruption" to the rail network across Britain.

News of the cancellation started to spread on Friday night, with fans expressing their disappointment at not being able to see the Flying Scotsman up close.
