Southeastern managing director Charles Horton said that patience was wearing thin

“Patience is wearing thin” after three days of disruption to train services caused by a gas leak under a railway line, a rail operator chief has said.

Gas started leaking in the Canterbury West area on Monday and Southern Gas Networks (SGN) began repairs. Buses have replaced some trains in the area.

Southeastern boss Charles Horton said his firm was disappointed it was taking so long to fix the problem.

SGN said it was a “complex engineering job” and apologised for the disruption.

Mr Horton, managing director of Southeastern, said: “Passengers have been without a train service between Ashford and Canterbury since Monday afternoon, patience is wearing thin and we want to get services back up and running again.”
