A spokesperson for the train operator said: “The high winds last night led to several trees being blown onto the track.

“This has caused extensive damage to the overhead power lines at Wylde Green.

“There will be no trains on the Birmingham to Lichfield line this morning. We are sorry to all passengers who have difficult journeys today.”
