A FALLEN tree at Swanwick that was blocking the railway line between Fareham and Southampton has now been removed.

Southern Rail said that although services are running again there will be delays.

Meanwhile, Hovertravel has said that it has had to stop its route between Southsea and the Isle of Wight.

A tweet said: ‘Unfortunately our services are suspended due to the adverse weather conditions.’

The disruption comes after today’s planned Great South Run events on Southsea Common were cancelled last night by the organisers due to the forecast 55mph winds.
