Commuters travelling from Welwyn Garden City Station have been left stranded following cancellations and taxi dramas.

Six people travelling to Hitchin have been left “frustrated” by Great Northern this afternoon.

The 3.23pm from Welwyn Garden City to Cambridge was delayed to 3.45pm but was then cancelled.

At rush hour the 5.26pm train to Cambridge North has also been cancelled.

Great Northern staff arranged for taxis to pick the customers up and some were taken to Stevenage Train Station.

One angry commuter, who wished not to be named, was travelling home to Hitchin after finishing her shift in Welwyn Garden City.

She said: “I was put into a taxi and got to the Campus West when the driver got a call from someone telling him to drop me back.

She added: “I’m so angry but it’s also verging on being funny now.

“It’s a complete joke.”
