“Rail replacement buses are running between Horsham and Three Bridges.

“These are taking longer to travel by road than usual due to roadworks taking place. Please speak to station staff for more details.”

Passengers are being warned to allow extra time for journeys and check journey planners prior to departure.

Network Rail tweeted: “We’re very sorry about the delays this morning.

“We have some damage to the electric cables which feed the third rail, which in turn powers the trains. We’re on the case trying to get this fixed ASAP.”
