Train passengers have been warned to expect delays all day because of leaves covering the tracks.

National Rail has said South West trains are likely to be affected because of autumnal weather, which it says could cause delays of about 10 minutes on services.

On its website it explained that when leaves collect around the railway they can be swept under passing trains and ground up under the wheels, creating a slippery paste.
