London Midland train driver shortage still 'affecting services'

An ongoing driver shortage is still affecting London Midland train services, the company has said.

Figures show that about 20% of its 1,311 daily services were delayed or cancelled throughout October.

Between October and December 2012 the company compensated 25,000 passengers after about 1,000 services were disrupted due to a lack of drivers.

The firm said it was training 53 new drivers which had "eased problems" but staffing "was still an issue."
