Hundreds of commuters have said they were affected by the disruption on London Northwestern railway services last week.

Passengers from Watford, Bushey and Kings Langley were all caught up in the chaos last week, being delayed travelling to Euston.

A survey conducted by the Liberal Democrats found that out of 409 participants, 98 per cent of Watford commuters were involved in the rail disruption, with 80 per cent believing the service they received was poor or very poor.

The survey also revealed that 92 per cent of people had thought the disruption has got worse since the introduction of the new timetable in May and 80 per cent said it was difficult to seek a refund via the operators 'Delay Repay' scheme.

The findings of the survey were presented to senior London Northwestern managers in a meeting with the Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor this week.

Cllr Ian Stotesbury, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Watford said: “I would like to thank the hundreds of people who have filled out this survey in just a few days.

“I commute every day on London Northwestern services and recently the service has been shocking. Delayed and cancelled trains aren't just an inconvenience, they can have a real impact on people's lives.”

“I've spoken to people in Watford who have had to miss being able to put their children to bed at night or have had formal warnings from their work for lateness.”

Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor added: “I'd like to congratulate Ian on the good work he has done with this survey.

“I presented the findings of this directly to London Northwestern bosses this week. I pressed them on when we would see an end to this disruption and what they would do to make sure those affected are given the compensation they are entitled to.”
