Trains between Wokingham and Ascot were delayed this afternoon.

Passengers faced delays of up to 30 minutes according to South West Trains.

The company, which operates the rail line between Reading and Waterloo revealed on Twitter that a fallen tree needed to be cleared from the line between Ascot and Wokingham, meaning that the line was blocked while the work takes place.
