From National Rail:

Emergency services have dealt with the incident that involved a person having been hit by a train between Bridgwater and Taunton. This has allowed lines to reopen however; trains between Bristol Temple Meads / Castle Cary and Taunton will still be disrupted whilst services return to normal. Trains may be delayed by up to 90 minutes or cancelled until end of the day.

Advice for CrossCountry customers:
You can use your ticket on Great Western Railway services on any reasonable route.

Advice for Great Western Railway customers:
You can use your ticket on CrossCountry services on any reasonable route and South Western Railway services between Exeter St Davids and London Waterloo.

Tickets will also be accepted on Stagecoach Buses on route 12 between Newton Abbot and Paignton.


William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.
