Gloucestershire rail services temporarily disrupted

Rail services in Gloucestershire were disrupted earlier by two separate incidents in the county.

Arriva trains between Newport and Gloucester were stopped due to a police incident at Lydney.

Also, passengers between Cheltenham and Swindon had to be transferred by road after a train broke down at Stroud.

A train-naming ceremony at the station for Stroud Meningitis Trust's 25th anniversary was going ahead as planned, First Great Western said.

Both services have resumed.
