Train passengers should expect a normal service today, according to South West Trains.

Due to the recent bout of snow, ice and sub zero temperatures, commuters have faced difficulties with train services.

But today South West trains said it will be running a normal service, but that some services may consist of fewer carriages.

Andy Pitt, managing director for South West Trains, said: 'We thank our passengers for their patience in recent days and apologise for the inconvenience they have experienced when we have been running fewer trains as a result of the severe weather conditions.

'Our staff have been working tirelessly in partnership with our infrastructure provider Network Rail to keep passengers on the move and updated in very challenging conditions.

'The Met Office has advised everyone to be aware of the changing weather situation at present.

'Along with Network Rail, we will continue to monitor forecasts closely in the coming days and weeks so we can plan our services effectively and ensure passengers are kept updated by our staff, through our website and at our stations.'

The train company is still advising passengers to check for updates on train timetables daily.
