TRAIN passengers are facing delays on the Thameslink service.

The heavy snowfall forced a number of services to be cancelled or delayed this morning and, just as services were getting back to normal, emergency engineering works started.

A First Capital Connect (FCC) spokesperson explained that Network Rail started work on the track in central London this morning and will continue to work overnight.

This is adding 10 to 15 minutes onto journeys as the trains pass over the affected stretch of track.
