07:05 Westbury to Cheltenham Spa due 09:04

07:05 Westbury to Cheltenham Spa due 09:04 will be diverted between Chippenham and Gloucester.

It will no longer call at Swindon, Kemble, Stroud and Stonehouse.
It will be delayed at Gloucester.

This is due to a burst water main flooding the railway.

That will make for a very interesting morning with buses on the Stroud Valley - this train is perhaps the busiest departure of all (across the 24 hours) from Swindon at present, (over)loaded with pupils to schools in Stroud.  The previous and following London to Cheltenham Spa services are also diverted - with extra calls at Bristol Parkway.
