Joining many commuters this morning (May 20), Eastbourne’s new MP took to Twitter to vent her frustration after being delayed by train for an important meeting.

And ironically, that meeting was with the Rail Minister.

She had left Eastbourne to make the journey to Westminster by train this morning, but like may others, she was caught up in the disruption.

Engineers were tasked to repair a broken rail at Haywards Heath, which caused severe delays from East Sussex to London.
