Several trains have been cancelled and other delayed at Banbury railway station due to signalling failures on the line to Birmingham.

Two individual faults with the signalling system have occurred between Birmingham Snow Hill and Banbury resulting in some lines being blocked from around 7.40am.

The lines have now reopened but Chiltern Railways trains running between these stations may be cancelled, delayed by up to 60 minutes or revised. Disruption is expected until 12pm, National Rail said.
