THERE are delays between Brighton and Worthing as lines reopen after a person was hit by a train.

All services between the two stations were blocked as emergency services dealt with the incident.

Those who have not yet set off on their journey were advised to delay their start as the emergency causes widespread destruction across lines.

Those already travelling can use their ticket on Brighton and Hove buses Stagecoach 700 to continue their journey, Southern Rail said.

A spokesman wrote on Twitter: "It is with great sadness that we report a person has been hit by a train between Brighton and Worthing.

"All lines are blocked between these stations whilst the emergency services work to deal with this incident.

"If you've not yet set off for the station, you should delay travelling until later if you can.

"You can use your ticket on Brighton and Hove buses Stagecoach 700."
