RAIL passengers are facing delays this morning after two incidents this morning.

A West Midlands Railway spokesperson said services between Bromsgrove and Hereford may experience delays relating to an incident, which has blocked the line between Cheltenham Spa and Birmingham New Street.

Emergency services are on scene to deal with the incident, which is causing disruption to train services on this line and is having a knock-on effect on other lines.

National rail said a fault with the signalling is also causing disruption to journeys between Cheltenham Spa and Worcester Shrub Hill / Birmingham New Street. As a result of this, trains may be delayed or revised.

Disruption is expected to last until 3pm today.
