MORE rail services are available from today as part of the government's plan to get more people back to work.

Social distancing measures will be in place to prevent trains from becoming overcrowded - passengers are urged to use services only if they have no other option.

South Western Railway, the operator that manages Salisbury railway station, is advising people to play their part in slowing the spread of coronavirus by wearing cloth face coverings, keeping a two-metre distance, washing hands before and after travelling, avoiding cash payments and travelling during quieter times.
