A planned trip through the Chilterns for the Flying Scotsman has been cancelled due to route issues.

The company behind the trip, Steam Dreams, said the line was not ready.

Instead the world famous locomotive will pass through the Surrey Hills.

A spokesperson for the company said they were not able to give out routes or timings but did confirm there would be a lunchtime trip and a later evening trip, leaving from Vicotoria.

The Chilterns route was due to leave Victoria at 9.45am before heading onto Bicester and Oxford.
