A FAULT with the signalling system between Shrewsbury and Hereford means all lines are blocked this morning.

National Rail said buses will replace Transport For Wales trains between Shrewsbury and Hereford until approximately 10am today (August 27).

Travellers can use their tickets on West Midlands Railway services between Shrewsbury / Hereford and Birmingham New Street, and on CrossCountry between Cardiff / Manchester and Birmingham New Street.

UPDATE 08.52am: The lines are now open but disruption is expected to continue until 10am.
