This was an operational matter for Network Rail and the train operators, who did what they could to keep services moving so far as was safely practicable in the difficult conditions. Given the reduced line capacity available, it was necessary for the train operators to substantially thin out the level of service; the resulting serious disruption to passengers on the route is regretted.
