A train is blocking a road in Horsham after it ground to a halt on the line this morning (Wednesday December 16).

Rusper Road is closed between the Brook Road junction and the Lambs Farm Road junction due to the train blocking the level crossing.

The road closure has led to heavy traffic in the surrounding area.

Replacement buses running between Horsham and Three Bridges will replace trains until at least 4.30pm.

Southern Rail said a problem with the electrical supply near Littlehaven has seen train services cancelled between the two stations.

Passengers are also being told they can use South West Trains on any reasonable route and Metrobuses between Gatwick Airport and Horsham.
