'Trespassers' have been blamed for delays on the railway around Wokingham this evening.

Great Western Railway responded to a tweet shortly before 5.30pm, explaining that the delays were caused by trespassers on the line.

One user claimed that someone had thrown metal onto the tracks close to Wokingham station, while another suggested that someone had been throwing rubbish.

National Rail has tweeted to confirm the incident, and that disruption is expected until 8pm.

National Rail also confirmed that services may be cancelled or delayed by up to 20 minutes.

British Transport Police has been notified and are en-route to remove the trespasser.

More on this as we get it.
