Rail nightmare for Redditch football fans heading for Villa v Blues match

FOOTBALL fans travelling to Villa Park for the Second City derby on Sunday (April 23) from Redditch and Alvechurch are facing a transport nightmare because of railway engineering works.

Work is being carried out between Five Ways and Longbridge and between Longbridge and Droitwich Spa.

There will be a replacement bus service operating between Lichfield and Redditch for supporters wanting to use stations from Redditch, including Alvechurch and Barnt Green.
