Trains between Gatwick and Croydon on the Redhill line are experiencing significant delays due to a incident where a person was hit by a train at Coulsdon South. As a result, the lines are currently blocked between Gatwick and Purley via Redhill, causing widespread disruption in train services.

Passengers are advised that while some trains will continue to run between these stations, they will not stop at Earlswood, Redhill, Merstham, and Coulsdon South until further notice. Commuters are encouraged to seek alternative routes or prepare for extended travel times.

Adding to the travel chaos, severe weather is set to impact train services across the South East of England today. Network Rail has imposed speed restrictions of 40 miles per hour on several routes south of London to ensure passenger safety. This precautionary measure will affect trains running along the south coast and routes between Three Bridges and Brighton, as well as Crowborough to Uckfield.

Travelers on these routes should expect delays, with journey times extending up to 30 minutes longer than usual. Authorities are working diligently to manage the situation and restore normal services as soon as possible. Commuters are urged to check the latest travel updates and plan their journeys accordingly.
