Commuters face more misery this morning (Tuesday) due to over-running engineering works, rail bosses have confirmed.

No northbound trains are currently leaving Welwyn Garden City, with train operator First Capital Connect urging passengers to find alternative routes.

A southbound service was resumed at around 7.30am this morning.

Passengers across Welwyn Hatfield are also reporting lengthy delays.

It comes shortly after the rail operator predicted a return to normal services following a day of cancellations due to storm damage.
