Rail commuters have faced delays and changes to their service around Horsham this morning (Thursday January 24).

Southern Rail say that due to a trespasser on the track earlier services were unable to run between Norwood Junction and London Bridge in both directions.

This has had a knock-on effect with some trains diverted and, for instance, the 9am Horsham to London Bridge service starting from Three Bridges.

Southern Rail add that passengers journey times will be extended by up to 45 minutes for the next two hours with some services being diverted, start or ending short of their destination or have ‘altered stopping patterns’.
