Disruption at two major UK stations causes travel chaos

Thousands of passengers travelling on trains serving two of Britain's busiest stations have been facing major disruption because of overrunning engineering work.

There were no services running between Reading and Paddington - affecting routes to the west country and Wales.

King's Cross station was closed, leading to chaotic scenes at Finsbury Park station in north London, after large crowds of passengers were diverted there instead.
