Trains services in Sussex and Kent continue to be disrupted following a train derailment.

A freight train derailed near Robertsbridge in East Sussex on Wednesday afternoon.

Southeastern Railway has cancelled all services between Robertsbridge and Hastings, and bus replacement services are running.

A fallen tree has also disrupted services between Ashford International and Maidstone East.

A crane has been called-in to move the freight train and it is expected the line will be closed for most of the day. Southern Railway are accepting ticket holders on reasonable routes.

Workers are also on site in Kent to clear the fallen tree. Passengers will be accepted on the high-speed services between St Pancras International and Maidstone West.
