Passengers have been warned there will be a reduced number of train services running via London Euston this bank holiday weekend.

Engineering work relating to HS2 is taking place in the Euston area over the coming days, with some lines closed on the approach to Euston station.

An amended timetable will be in place to and from London Euston all weekend, with platforms 12-16 out of use.

National Rail has confirmed rail operators will be affected including London Northwestern and Avanti West Coast.

This means that London Northwestern passengers at stations including Watford Junction, Bushey, and Kings Langley will likely need to check the timetable ahead of their journey.

On Saturday (August 28), Sunday, and Monday, London Northwestern says its trains will run to an amended timetable between London Euston and Northampton.

Customers are being urged to check before they travel.

Andrew Haines, Network Rail chief executive, said: "The railway will be open for business over the August Bank Holiday, so people can reconnect, visit friends and family or take a holiday.

"While some works are taking place, we’ve worked hard to reduce the impact on passengers as far as possible so that they can enjoy and rely on our railway."

Passengers are being advised to follow government guidance and wear a face covering in busy indoor settings unless they are exempt.
