Capacity on rail services between London and the west will increase following changes to old carriages.

First Great Western has completed a project to increase capacity by 10% across its network and add an extra 4,500 seats to its peak time trains.

Fifteen old buffet cars were among those converted to allow all high-speed services to have eight carriages.

First Great Western operates services between London Paddington, Wales, Thames Valley and the west country.
