Rail bosses have admitted they have no idea when the line between St Erth and Penzance will re-open.

It has been closed since Friday after track, signalling and platforms were damaged in the Valentine's Day storms.

Network Rail's carrying out checks and although they want to get services up and running as soon as possible, the line will stay shut until further notice.

In a statement, the company said: "The line between Penzance and St Erth is now closed owing to damages to infrastructure caused by the storm on Friday. Track, signalling equipment and station platforms were damaged and engineers are now actively assessing the impact with an aim to scope out the repair required to resume services as quickly as possible. The line will remain close until further notice."

Pirate FM has already told you the battered line at Dawlish could take longer than six weeks to repair.

First Great Western is still reporting cancellations, delays and bus replacement services.

Their advice is to check ahead of your journey.
