RAIL passengers are being left stranded at stations today due to signalling problem between Reading and Wokingham.

Since 9pm yesterday, no trains have been stopping at Winnersh Triangle and Earley due to a signalling problem on the railway lines.

Commuters have had to travel direct to their stops and then use a replacement bus to get to their destination.

Jane Lee, spokesman at South Western Railway, said: "The problem has been affecting passengers since half past nine travelling towards Reading from Wokingham.

"We have deployed buses from Wokingham and Network Rail blocked the line at 10am this morning to assess the issue - we apologise for the inconvenience."

The train service have explained that bus replacement services are still available and they hope the problem is fixed by tonight.

Network Rail have been contacted for a comment.
