A major rail link between Gatwick Airport and London has reopened after a week of closures.
The Gatwick Express service, which links the West Sussex airport with London Victoria, closed on 26 December.
Maintenance on the line between Redhill in Surrey and Purley in south London was carried out during the shutdown.
Southern, First Capital Connect and First Great Western services to the airport were disrupted.
A new platform was also built at Gatwick Airport during the closure, with the associated changes to track and signalling. Platform seven is due to be open from February.
