Areas currently affected in Surrey are:

The aftermath of Storm Dennis continued to cause transport chaos as train lines and roads were blocked by flooding and fallen trees.

South Western Railway, Southern and Thameslink were among the operators with delays and cancellations on Monday.

No trains could run through Mitcham Junction in south London as the electric third rail was switched off due to flooding.

Just as with Storm Ciara last weekend, Storm Dennis has had a significant impact on the railway.

The heavy rainfall, combined with already waterlogged ground conditions, has led to flooding in a number of areas across the network.

Our engineers have been working in extremely difficult conditions throughout Sunday and overnight to clear the tracks and keep passengers moving.

The majority of services are now running as scheduled, but we do still urge anyone travelling over the next couple of days to check before they travel at www.nationalrailenquiries.co.uk.

Two out of three lanes of the A3 southbound between the M25 and Ockham were closed due to floodwater from an adjacent field spilling on to the carriageway.
