Commuters in Berkshire were stranded during morning rush hour when a tree fell on the line near Reading.

There were no South West Trains services between Reading and Wokingham while the tree was removed.

South West Trains said it was cleared just before 10:00 BST after chainsaw crews were called to the scene, near Earley.

Rail replacement buses were available from 09:00, prompting complaints from commuters unable to travel.

Delays will continue throughout the morning while the service returns to normal.
