Landslide disrupts rail services in East Sussex

First published in News by , Crime reporter

A landslide has disrupted rail services in East Sussex. 

Southern has described the "landslip" as occurring between Bexhill and Hastings.

A Twitter statement said: "Owing to a landslip between Bexhill and Hastings all lines are blocked services through stations may be cancelled delayed by up to 30 mins."

A spokesman from the train service told The Argus: "It is in the Bexhill area. It looks like a certain section of the track has been washed away. We can only operate a shuttle service between Eastbourne and Bexhill and Hastings and Ashford International.

"There is a rail replacement service.

"Buses are going between Bexhill and Hastings."

Why does it say, in your travel section, that tickets are valid on FCC & SouthWest Trains services? Neither of these operators run services in the affected area.

At least trains are still running between Eastbourne and Bexhill. In these days of an inflexible railway I was expecting to read of tacky "replacement" buses between Eastbourne and Hastings.
Tickets should be available on South-eastern trains between London and Hastings.
