13:00 London Paddington to Plymouth due 16:55 will be delayed between Reading and Didcot Parkway by 9 minutes, will be further delayed at Chippenham and is expected to be 16 minutes late.
This is due to a speed restriction over an embankment.

High winds perchance?

A member of the public handed in an old hand grenade at Newquay police station. The railway station fell within the initial exclusion zone.

18:35 Great Malvern to London Paddington due 21:25
Facilities on the 18:35 Great Malvern to London Paddington due 21:25.
Toilet facilities are available as normal.
This is due to a fault on this train.
