South Western Railway said the blockage between Havant and Petersfield means trains have to run at reduced speed on all lines.

Delays of up to 15 minutes are expected to 4pm.

Meanwhile, all hover craft sailings from Southsea have been cancelled.

Strong winds meant the craft could not operate, Hovertravel said.
