TRAIN passengers are being urged not to travel on the west coast main line after an overnight signals failure.

Network Rail says a power loss between Milton Keynes and Watford Junction will cause disruption all day to services from Wolverhampton, Birmingham New Street and Birmingham International.

Passengers are being urged to check their journeys at and follow alternative travel advice from West Midlands Railway and Avanti West Coast.

Phil Barnes, operations director at Network Rail, said: “I’m sorry passengers journeys won’t go as planned today. We have lost power on six miles of railway in the Leighton Buzzard area, which means that most services in and out of Euston will be cancelled.

"We’re working quick time to get this fixed and services back up and running as quickly as possible, so passengers can travel as normal. Please check National Rail Enquiries before travelling today."
