Rail passengers have been stuck on a train from Haywards Heath for nearly four hours this morning (April 30).

British Transport Police and paramedics have evacuated some of the trains which have been stuck outside Clapham Junction, however some passengers are complaining the trains are hot and crowded with no air conditioning.

Southern Rail said the delays are expected to last until the end of the service. Gatwick Express services are not running.

Jason Parker @jdsp1974, tweeted: “No - no news, nearly 4 hours now. Our train is also now apparently broken down too. Hurrah.”

Southern has apologised for the disruption to the service at Clapham Junction. To claim visit:

A spokesperson for Southern said: “A major power supply problem between Clapham and Wandsworth Common has disrupted Southern train services into London Victoria this morning. Engineers are on site and we aim to resume services as quickly as possible. Services into and out of Victoria are currently suspended. Southern tickets are valid on all other routes into London and Southern passengers are advised to avoid travelling through Clapham Junction, which is very busy.”
