There has been delays on the rails this morning (September 26) between Brighton and Eastbourne due to an alarm stopping a train.

National Rail says all lines have now reopened (10.51am) between Eastbourne and Lewes after a train got stuck at Hampden Park.

According to the rail operator, an alarm sounded on the 0924 Eastbourne to London Victoria service, causing the train to come to a stop at Hampden Park.

As the fault could not clear, it caused a blockage out of Eastbourne.
