Flooding is set to cause further delays for train passengers between Brockenhurst and Bournemouth because the line is still waterlogged.

Electric trains were unable to run from Southampton to Bournemouth on Wednesday evening so replacement buses were used.

Trains between Brockenhurst and Bournemouth had to run at slower speeds with delays of up to 30 minutes.

South West Trains said water levels in the area were receding but disruption was expected until 11:00 GMT.
