More than 3,000 people have taken part in a survey looking on the possibility of reopening a Wiltshire railway station.

Corsham station was closed to passenger traffic in January 1965 as part of the Beeching cuts.

North Wiltshire District Council said the question of reopening the station had been considered many times.

"This response shows how important the issue remains for people in Corsham," said Council leader Dick Tonge.

The authority said the responses would be passed to the new Wiltshire Council for consideration on future plans for rail transport links and infrastructure in North Wiltshire.

The questionnaire was sent every home and business in the town and was also available online.
