A spokesman for Southern Rail said there is a fault with the signalling system between Crowborough and Uckfield.

He added: “Trains that usually run between London Bridge and Uckfield will now run between London Bridge and Crowborough.

“If you have not yet set off to the station, please travel later on today if you can. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

“Rail replacement buses will run between Uckfield and Crowborough whilst this signalling fault is investigated further.”

Trains are able to run beyond Crowborough, Southern said.

The spokesman added: “If you wish you can use Lewes or Haywards Heath as an alternative station.

“Your ticket will be accepted on any train towards London (both Southern and Thameslink).

“You can also use Tunbridge Wells station with @SE_Railway services.

“You may be required to make use of an alternative route if you are travelling to / from Uckfield or Buxted today.”
