Train and bus routes from Buckingham, Milton Keynes, Bicester and Aylesbury are suspended or experiencing delays due to Storm Eunice. All trains in and out of Aylesbury have been cancelled as the Chiltern Railways tracks were forced to close.

Avanti West Coast said that it would be operating one train from Euston Station to Birmingham New Street once every two hours but the scheduled trains have been cancelled. The British Rail Industry has since issued a blanket ‘do not travel’ warning.

With a combination of exceptionally strong winds, storm surges and high tides, transport companies have taken the rare move to cancel services across the country and urged Britons to remain at home where possible, according to the Telegraph.

London City Airport has closed and British Airways have cancelled a number of flights because of gale force winds. Other airports are reporting flights experiencing difficulty landing due to the high winds. Cross-channel ferries have also been cancelled.

London and South East England are under a rare red alert warning that was issued  this morning as Eunice is being tagged as the worst storm that the UK has seen in 30 years.
