Customers are advised to check the journey before travelling.

Chiltern Railways said engineers are "working as quickly as possible to repair the damaged section of railway".

It comes after a wall collapse and landslip at Yarnton caused widespread disruption last February with services between Oxford and Kingham paused for 11 days.
