Train services are suspended on Great Western Railway after a train derailed in Hampshire.

Long delays are expected until 6pm on Thursday (05/08) between Portsmouth, Brighton and Southampton after the incident took place at a depot in Fratton.

The derailed train has blocked some of the rail lines and South Western Railway said fewer trains will be able to run.

Passengers are being told to expect cancellations and changes to the timetable.

Commuters can use their train tickets on Stagecoach buses 23 between Portsmouth Harbour and Havant and 70/71/72 between Guildford and Haslemere for no extra cost.
