ravel disruption caused by Storm Eunice will continue into Saturday as the clean-up begins from the deadly storm.

Many train services will remain unopened on Saturday morning and “do not travel” notices have been reissued for a number of services, according to National Rail Enquiries.

National Rail said “routes across most of Great Britain” remain affected.

A do not travel notice was reissued for the Southern, Thameslink and Great Northern networks for Saturday morning where some routes are expected not to reopen until the afternoon.

South Western Railway expects significant disruption across their network in the morning, while Great Western Railway and Greater Anglia services are suspended until approximately 10am.

Passengers are still being asked to avoid travelling where possible.

The storm earlier caused travel chaos, with hundreds of rail lines blocked and road bridges closed.

Do not travel alerts were issued across railways in England and Wales on Friday, as seven operators suspended all services, with footage showing a building roof being blown on to tracks.

The train operators which stopped running all services on Friday afternoon were: c2c, Chiltern Railways, Great Western Railway, Greater Anglia, South Western Railway, Southeastern and Transport for Wales.

As of early Saturday morning the National Rail website still listed no services for: Avanti West Coast, Chiltern Railways, Grand Central, Great Western Railway, Greater Anglia, Heathrow Express, South Western Railway, Stansted Express and Transport for Wales.

Meanwhile, CrossCountry Trains has asked passengers not to travel on Saturday “following cancelled strike action”.

The provider wrote on Twitter: “Whilst a strike has been called off, we have not been able to reinstate our timetable. An amended timetable runs today.”

More than 430 flights due to take off or land at UK airports were also cancelled on Friday.

Both the M4 Prince of Wales Bridge and the M48 Severn Bridge, which link England and Wales across the River Severn, were closed due to high winds.
