Trains on the Marston Vale Line between Bedford and Bletchley will not run on Friday as Storm Eunice is expected to cause widespread disruption.

And London Northwestern Railway (LNR) is warning passengers not to travel tomorrow.

LNR will operate a significantly reduced timetable all day due to blanket speed restrictions that will be in place across the network.
