Great Western Railway is reducing its service due to coronavirus. 

In a statement late last night, it said it aims to work with government guidelines against non-essential travel, but make sure certain routes are maintained to help key workers get to work.

GWR's Interim managing director Matthew Golton said: "The railway is a critical part of the UK’s infrastructure and, even though many people are remaining at home due to the latest Government advice, we will be relied upon to continue to help key workers in other sectors get to work so they can provide services critical to the day-to-day running of the country. 

"Our responsibility is to run a service that can be relied upon at this time. We are taking sensible measures to make sure we are able to do so."
