Ice delays trains as cold snap continues
Icy conditions caused train delays of up to 90 minutes on Saturday, after temperatures dropped below freezing in parts of the country overnight. Network Rail said some Southern, Gatwick Express and Thameslink lines were forced to run at reduced speeds. South Western Railway also warned of delays due to ice, which came on top of planned weekend engineering works. Temperatures fell to lows of -5.2C in Yorkshire, as forecasters said the wintry weather looked set to continue.
