Rail firm runs taxis to get pupils to exams.

Under-fire rail firm Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) has become a taxi service to ensure pupils get to exams on time after cancelling hundreds of trains.

In a briefing, the firm told staff it would be providing taxis and buses in "key locations" to support students and "key schools" had been contacted.

It comes after services were cancelled to deal with a new timetable that caused chaos on lines across the UK.

GTR said its recent timetable change had required a phased introduction.

The "key locations" include Letchworth and Hitchin in Hertfordshire, Cambridge and South Croydon.


GTR said it would not be sharing the names of the schools in question.
