Fire near railway line causes delays on services through Havant
A FIRE next to the railway track between Petersfield and Havant is causing delays on services this evening.
Trains on the Portsmouth-bound line are having to run at reduced speed while emergency services deal with the blaze.
Part of the track may need to be closed at a later stage.
Services running between Guildford and Havant may be delayed or revised.
Disruption is expected until 10pm.
A statement on the National Rail website said: ‘The fire is away from the tracks and therefore trains are running at reduced speed.
‘A line block may need to be taken.’
