On the West Midlands Railway website, there is a notice saying that many trains may be delayed, changed or cancelled.

Customers have been advised to check their journey using the real-time journey planner, or the 'Live Departure & Arrivals' to see trains at your station.

People are also avised to check trains before you set off, and make a note of alternative trains in case something goes wrong.

You can claim compensation through 'Delay Repay' if you're delayed by 15 minutes or more.
