Trains are being delayed across West Sussex this afternoon (Thursday, May 30).

Southern Rail reported at 2.15pm that it has been ‘advised of a problem with the safety phone equipment’ at level crossings in the Arundel area.

"This means that trains will need to stop on approach to the level crossings and then proceed at much slower speeds over each one,” a social media statement read.
