A major power failure has caused hours of delays to some trains through Birmingham New Street.
Network Rail asked people to avoid the station after signals stopped working properly at Proof House Junction.
Trains are struggling to get in and out of the south end of the station, with problems affecting Arriva Trains Wales, CrossCountry Trains, London Midland and Virgin Trains.
Power is now restored but delays are expected to continue until 12:00 BST.

The latest problems come after passengers took to Twitter to express their frustration over severe delays due to another signalling problem last Friday.
Thousands of rail commuters also faced delays and cancellations across England on Tuesday 5 April when overhead electric wires stopped working at Birmingham International station.
