Ed Sheeran live in Cardiff too.

Got a mate back at GWR who’s taking his daughter to see Ed Sheran at the weekend,
“Saving myself a fortune by staying overnight in Bristol” he said
Somebody then advised him of the fact the Severn Tunnel is closed and it’s buses.  Apparantly the grin was soon wiped off his face.

What might have happened on this one ?
http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/C40319/2018/06/21/advanced

0603 Bristol Parkway to London Paddington - This service was cancelled between Swindon and London Paddington due to an issue with the train crew (TG).

Yet another delay to my journeys in what has been a very bad two weeks.

TG is the delay attribution code for driver related issues. Appears to be no driver to bring the 3G02 empty stock from Paddington to Swindon. It looks like the set from 1L05 was used to form the 1G02 06:40 Swindon to Cheltenham service instead.

Does anyone know what happened at Paddington last night to get the Thames valley home when these services were cancelled?

Ps. Further peak services cancelled this morning for the same reason. I guess it is holiday season.
