Rail firms say passenger services across Kent have returned to normal following the recent severe weather.

Both Southeastern and Southern Railways said they were running their usual Sunday timetables.

Southeastern has been heavily criticised by passengers who were left stuck on trains for several hours or unable to get home for days.

On Friday spokeswoman Sarah Boundy said staff had worked round the clock to run the best service it could.

Ms Boundy said there were compensation arrangements for people who had suffered cancellations and delays and it would be carrying out a review of its services.

In a statement on Sunday, Southeastern trains, said: "We will be running the planned Sunday service, including engineering works.

"Weather permitting we are planning to run the normal timetable for Monday 6 December."

Kent Police said although the weather had improved motorists should still take care as there was a risk of ice on untreated roads.

Over the past few days the UK has experienced the earliest widespread snowfall since 1993.
