Rail commuters have faced frustrating journeys this morning (Monday February 17) after yet more severe weather.

There is major disruption on the Brighton mainline after floods damaged signal equipment at Patcham, near Preston Park.

A spokesperson for Souther Rail said: “This means it will not be possible for us to operate our normal service on Monday February 17. Instead, we will be running a reduced alternative service with services between Haywards Heath and Brighton being diverted via Lewes.

“A half hourly service will run between Hassocks and Haywards Heath, calling at Burgess Hill and Wivelsfield. Rail replacement buses will run from Brighton to Hassocks. Passengers for London should change at Haywards Heath.

“Passengers for London from stations east of Worthing and the east coast should travel via Lewes

“Passengers for London from stations west of Worthing should travel via Barnham and the Arun Valley.”
