Rail services have been severely delayed because of overhead wire problems between Wolverhampton and Birmingham New Street.

Network Rail, which has apologised, said engineers were on site trying to restore electricity but disruption would last until at least 22:30 GMT.

All Arriva Trains Wales, CrossCountry, London Midland and Virgin Trains routes through Wolverhampton were affected.

London Midland passengers may use their tickets on local bus services.
