WESTBURY Station has now reopened, following an over-run on engineering works which kept the station shut on Friday.

GWR announced on Twitter at ten minutes to midnight yesterday that the station was open - though warned passengers to check their journeys.

The notice said: "Lines have now reopened through Westbury following the overrunning engineering works.

"We are sorry for any delay to your journey because of this. There may still be residual disruption so please check your journey before travelling."

The station, which was shut over Christmas for engineering works, was scheduled to reopen at 4am Friday, but to commuters dismay it was still closed Friday morning.
