COMMUTERS faced more misery this morning when services from stations in Crow Country were disrupted due to a shortage of drivers.
Train operator First Capital Connect said that "a handful" of services from Royston were cancelled this morning, and that they don't expect any more problems today.
A spokesman said: "We're still in talks with the unions over pay and conditions, and will know more later today about whether there will be further disruption later in the week."
The driver shortage has come about because staff are refusing to work overtime or rest days due to an ongoing dispute over pay and conditions.
