Furious passengers on a £400-a-night Caledonian Sleeper train were unable to wash or go to the toilet in their compartments after they were left without running water.

Passengers on board the 8.30pm train from Inverness to London Euston on Friday evening only found out about the water supply issues as they boarded the 'luxury' train. 

Elderly guests were unable to shower and were forced to use communal toilets 'down a long corridor' throughout the duration of the 12-hour journey. 

Ian Barratt, 81, from Maldon in Essex, who paid £800 for a return ticket said he sat down for breakfast on Saturday morning 'unwashed, unshaven and dirty'. 

He told the Daily Record: 'Embarrassed staff, willing and helpful though they were, suggested that passengers could use the few general passenger toilets situated on the express.
