TRAIN DELAYS are expected due to overheated rails.

Those journeying between Reading and London Paddington can expect some delays today (Tuesday), due to speed restrictions being put in place due to overheated rails. 

A Great Western Rail spokesperson said: "Due to a speed restriction because of high track temperatures between Reading and London Paddington, trains have to run at reduced speed on some lines towards London Paddington.

"Train services running to and from these stations may be delayed or revised."

The disruption is expected to last until the end of the day.
