UPDATE: Strong winds damaged a level crossing this morning stopping trains running between Newhaven Harbour and Seaford for more than an hour.

Network Rail reported the problem at 7.45am today as high winds blew one of the crossing barriers onto the track near Beachy Road.

Passengers had to use Brighton & Hove Buses instead.

The damage was cleared and the line reopened at about 9am.

Well the barriers were down at 07.05 this morning!
Water on the line, poorly implemented signalling upgrades?
Details needed soon!

Considering the number of times this stretch of line is closed for "improvement works" you would think they would have cracked it by now. The signalling and crossings at Newhaven need sorting once and for all.
