Weather causes del­uge of rail delays

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - New Arrivals -

Rail com­muters in Ash­ford were faced with delays on Tues­day morn­ing, with more than 60 can­cel­la­tions across Kent re­sult­ing from the storm.

Net­work Rail said that sig­nal- ling prob­lems on the line were caused by power ca­bles com­ing down over the rail­way lines in Pen­shurst, near Tun­bridge Wells, at around 5.30am.

Rail op­er­a­tor South­east­ern also had to con­tend with flood­ing at their Gilling­ham de­pot, lead­ing to ma­jor dis­rup­tions dur­ing the morn­ing rush hour. Over 70% of ser­vices were run­ning on time by the evening rush hour.
