At 11.26am on Monday, September 18, Southern Rail posted about the issue on social media.

A company spokesperson said the tree is blocking the line in the Willingdon junction area and a train will remove it, which will allow services to be able to run through the area again.

Southern added: “Both lines will remain blocked until the tree has been removed. Please allow extra time to complete your journey this morning. We are expecting delays of up to 15 minutes.”
