Travel provider South Western Railway has made extensive changes to its services in and out of the city because of a shortage of train crew.

The adjustments affect 21 services until 6.44pm and rail users are advised to check the status of their journey before they travel.

It comes on the final day of a public South Western Railway consultation, through which service users can have their say on the firm’s plans to make major changes to its network next year.
