Commuters travelling in and out of Bath face delays on roads and trains
Commuters travelling in and out of Bath are facing delays this morning after trouble on both the roads and the trains.
A landslip which happened at Westerleigh, near Yate, yesterday is causing some disruption on the Swindon to Bristol Parkway line, meaning more trains from London have been diverted through Bath.
This heavy traffic has had a knock-on effect for local trains and people are being warned to expect some delays.
However, a further problem with online departure boards means passengers are being given misleading information that a large number of trains are heavily delayed or cancelled when this is not actually the case.

Motorists are being asked to avoid the Bath Road, between Wick and Lansdown, this morning because of dangerously icy conditions.
Part of the stretch has been closed after police received a number of calls from members of the public reporting that cars were slipping off the road.
It is understood there may have been some minor collisions as a result of the icy weather, but none of them are believed to be serious.
There is also queuing on the main road from Midsomer Norton to Bath, around Dunkerton.
Bath and North East Somerset Council has been called to address the problems caused by the ice by re-gritting some of the roads around the city.
