Storms Wreak Havoc for UK Travelers as COP26 Opens

Travel between London and Glasgow was snarled on October 31 after storm damage caused the suspension of train service from Euston Station on the day the Scottish city opened the COP26 UN climate summit.

In a statement, Network Rail said that “extremely heavy rain and strong wind” impacted its lines. The agency said a tree fell, damaging wires on the West Coast main line and shuttering it in both directions.
