RAIL users wanting to travel between Redditch and Birmingham are facing delays and cancellations because of a signalling fault between Longbridge and New Street Station.

Network Rail said it was working hard to rectify the problems and rail replacement buses are being organised between Bromsgrove and Redditch and Longbridge.

The 2.12pm and 2.32pm from Redditch to Four Oaks and Lichfield, via Birmingham New Street, have been cancelled with delays to other services.

Disruption is expected to last until 4pm today.
