Delays on Brighton to Bedford line after cable theft
Rail passengers are facing delays today (July 26) after thieves stole cable from a main line last night.
First Capital Connect said customers were facing 90 minute delays on lines from Brighton to Bedford after the theft led to signalling problems.
The Bedford problem also hit passengers travelling with the Southeastern train company.
It adds to a difficult time for transport bosses, as they deal with the increased usage due to the Olympics and sweltering heat.
Yesterday saw many of Brighton and Hove Bus Company ’s services struggle to deal with the increase in numbers as tourists flocked to the coast to enjoy the sunshine.
