London Midland is advising Wembley-bound Aston Villa fans to change trains at Harrow and Wealdstone this Saturday (30th May) when travelling to the FA Cup final. The train company has also said no alcohol will be allowed on board London Midland services to and from the game.

Our advice to fans is plan ahead and allow plenty of time for your journey in case you need to wait for the next service.”
