Southern Railway said anyone travelling on the line should allow for an extra 15-20 minutes to complete their journey.

A spokesperson for Southern Railway said, “Animals on the railway between Eastbourne and Lewes means that trains must run at a reduced speed. As a result, trains may be cancelled or delayed by up to 10 minutes.”

The line has now been cleared.
