A spokesman from Southeastern said: "The safety of our passengers is our highest priority and with the risk of trees falling onto railway lines, flooding and landslips, Network Rail has put in place a 40 mph speed restriction across parts of the Southeastern network. This will take effect from 8pm Friday night until the close of service.
"We will work hard to provide the best possible service, however because of the speed restrictions trains will run slower than usual and some will be delayed or cancelled at short notice. Services on Saturday may also be affected.
"lease allow additional time for your journey and check live running information before you travel."
