TRAIN services on the Cotswold Line through West Oxfordshire are operating normally again after earlier disruption caused by a broken-down train.

The Turbo diesel train working the 6.52am train from Worcester to Oxford suffered a seized gearbox at Evesham, in Worcestershire, just after 7am, resulting in the closure of the line between Moreton-in-Marsh and Worcester.

A number of trains were cancelled, while others only ran between Oxford and Moreton-in-Marsh.

Train operator First Great Western said there could still be some delays, due to trans and crews being out of position.
