Plans to place speed restrictions on rail services in the Thames Valley for a second consecutive day have been cancelled.
The restrictions were in place yesterday due to the heat, and were due to be in force again between 2.30pm and 6.30pm today.
However, operator Great Western Railway has now confirmed the restrictions will not go ahead.
There will be some amendments to services in London and the Thames Valley, as a 'key route strategy' is in place to protect vulnerable points between London Paddington and Reading.
