Rail chaos which ruined mourners’ journeys continues for second day

Disruption to train services in and out of London Paddington will continue until noon Tuesday, passengers have been warned, with many stranded Monday night in Reading following the Queen’s funeral.

No trains have been able to enter or leave Paddington station, west London, since 6.30am on Monday because of damage to overhead electric wires near Hayes and Harlington station.

Many passengers were advised to change trains at Reading, leading to long queues of people at the station on Monday night.
