And another train cancellation.
INFO: 17.44 London Bridge to East Grinstead has been cancelled due to a signalling fault.— @SouthernRailUK 27 August 2013
Some useful information there from @WVFcommuter for anyone trying to get to Littlehampton from London Bridge at the moment, or if you're waiting for someone to arrive.
18:12 LBG - Littlehampton also cancelled tonight. #Bricom— @WVFCommuter 27 August 2013
If you are a cyclist then be careful out there:
17:42 LBG - L'Hampton & 17:44 LBG - EGR both CANCELLED. #Bricom— @WVFCommuter 27 August 2013
Reports of some congestion at the A27 Arundel bypass. Will keep an eye on that for you.
For those on the trains waiting for your train (and if you are coming back from London Bridge you might be waiting a bit longer), the British Transport Police has been making videos highlighting techniques used by thieves.
Here is the latest bit of advice from them:
Still seems all clear on the roads. Will let you know if that changes.
Engineers have worked as fast as possible to restore services to normal. Delays of up to 20 minutes can be expected— @SouthernRailUK 27 August 2013
Rail passengers using Uckfield are being advised to use Haywards Heath instead.
As a result of the short formation and cancellations on the Uckfield service this evening. It has been agreed that customers can use 1/2— @SouthernRailUK 27 August 2013
RT @SouthernRailUK: Haywards Heath station as the alternative to Uckfield station to aviod congestion and further delays between London Bri…— @HaywardsHeathRT 27 August 2013
It looks like that 17:08 London Bridge to Uckfield has been cancelled.
Bad news for @thedudemaster and anyone else eagerly awaiting the service.
@SouthernRailUK the 17.08 LB to Uck should be in the platform by now and it's not. Is there a delay here too?— @TheDudemaster 27 August 2013
It was never going to last was it?
Network Rail have just reported 20 minute delays to and from London Bridge due to a signalling fault near Norwood Junction.
It is currently affecting all Southern trains.
According to Network Rail, "these delays will continue until further notice".
We will let you know when/if they are cleared.
So how are you getting home today?
Here's a lovely sight for anyone about to jump in their car, a clean bill of health from the Highways Agency for traffic problems:
If that changes at any point, rest assured we will be the first to let you know. And if you run into any traffic, or are stranded at a platform, make sure you let us know.

So far it looks very quiet out there, and combined with the sunny weather, it could be a lovely commute home.
Good afternoon. This is Peter guiding you home today with all the latest news with the trains, planes and automobiles.
