Train services through Southampton Central disrupted

Rail passengers going through Southampton faced major delays after power supply problems on the line.

Electric trains were unable to run through Southampton Central earlier on Wednesday.

Diesel trains were able to operate a limited service but overcrowding and delays meant many passengers' journeys were extended by up to an hour.

The line has since reopened but delays to services using the station have continued through the afternoon.
