Now trains are running but as a reduced service.

Southern Rail advised customers to check journey planners ahead of travel as alternative routes may be used.

It comes as a yellow weather warning has been issued across the south, with wind expected to reach more than 50mph.

The yellow weather warning is in place until 9pm tonight.

Residents across the south have been warned to expect travel disruption as a result.

Hovertravel and Red Funnel have suspended ferries to and from the Isle of Wight as a result. Wightlink ferries are currently running as normal.
