Hitchin and Harpenden MP Bim Afolami is hosting a meeting with Govia Thameslink Railway and Network Rail following widespread chaos on the towns railways.

Since a timetable change on Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) services on Sunday, May 20, commuters have complained of cancellations, delays and overcrowding on services through his constituency.

Mr Afolami has organised a meeting at The Harpenden Arms between 7.30pm and 8.30pm on Thursday, July 5, where members of the public can ask questions to the representatives, who are yet to be confirmed.

There is also a meeting at The Sun Hotel in Hitchin at the same time on Wednesday, July 4.
