Mourners attending the Queen’s funeral are facing disruption after damaged overhead power lines blocked all rail links between Slough and Paddington.
It means potential problems for those traveling from Reading or Heathrow Airports. Great Western Railway (GWR), Heathrow Express and the Elizabeth line were all affected.
National Rail Inquiries said there was “major disruption” between Paddington and Heathrow and Reading through the end of the day, with potential cancellations and delays of up to 90 minutes.
Problems are being caused by damage to power cables in Hayes and Harlington, towards the west edge of London.
Lines between Reading and Newbury were also closed after a person was hit by a train, meaning GWR trains are being diverted and once again delaying journeys to London.
