We are very sorry to passengers for the serious disruption to services across the south western network today (Friday 22 March).

We encountered problems with the electrical supply to the railway line following overnight engineering works, and without electricity we were unable to safely run a train service.

We know this has caused serious disruption and crowding to your journeys - our teams have been working hard throughout today ensuring recovery of train services for passengers as quickly as possible.
