Stoke Gifford IET depot fire alarms sounded around 4am. Depot evacuated from 0416-0443.

Consequently, many sets were late leaving the depot for their first service of the day and have had to start short. Not just Hereford starters affected.

Due to fire alarms sounding this morning at Stoke Gifford depot, sets departed late and have resulted in numerous service alterations, namely:
- 1K71 0515 Bristol TMs to Paddington, terminating short Westbury
- 1P12 0528 Hereford to Paddington, starting from Worcester SH (and now running 18mins late)
- 1A70 0605 Frome to Paddington, starting from Westbury
- 1A06 0618 Weston to Paddington, starting from Bristol TMs
- 1A09 0712 Taunton to Paddington, starting from Weston;
- 1G02 0640 Swindon to Cheltenham cancelled throughout.

Time flies by when you're a driver of a train,
Speeding out of Trumpton with a cargo of cocaine.
