Train delays in Hampshire after van crashes into level crossing
TRAINS into Hampshire have faced delays this morning after an incident at a level crossing in Sussex.
Network Rail has confirmed that a van drove into a barrier at Angmering Railway Station earlier this morning, closing the crossing and slowing trains down through the area.
The incident caused a number of train delays to trains heading to and from Havant.
A spokesman from Network Rail said: '˜The incident took place at 7.24am '“Â it was a van that had driven into the barrier at Angmering.
'˜The barrier had been damaged and was pointing away from the track.
'˜We got out there quite quickly to repair the damage, but there was a big traffic build-up while the crossing was closed, and trains had to run at a reduced speed.
'˜Everything was back up and running by 8.33am.'
