Here are today’s travel headlines.

Most routes across England and Wales will be affected by the hot weather on Tuesday, according to National Rail, with customers told only to travel if “absolutely necessary”.

Network Rail said: “There will be delays, cancellations and last-minute changes to train services due to the unprecedented record heat on those days.”


LNER isn’t running any trains from south of York and south of Leeds to London King’s Cross. No Grand Central services are operating today.

Hull Trains will not be running any services to and from London Kings Cross either today.

The RAC anticipated that the number of vehicle breakdowns on Monday and Tuesday could be up to a fifth higher than normal.
