Train services are running two and from Kenilworth Station again after they were cancelled in January due to Covid-19.

Trains are again running in and out of Kenilworth Station after services were cancelled for months due to Covid-19.

In January West Midlands Railway (WMR) announced in January that it would be running an amended timetable at the station which included replacing trains between Leamington and Kenilworth with a bus service.

WMR said the decision was made in order to "keep key workers moving during the current national lockdown".

Cllr Richard Dickson, mayor of Kenilworth, took the 7:07am train to Coventry this morning from Kenilworth.

He said: "It was great to be on the train to Coventry this morning from Kenilworth.

"Getting more trains stopping at the station is a vital part of our response to the climate change emergency and to boost our tourism economy."
