Description

All lines have been reopened after the communication alarm being activated on a train at Gatwick Airport.

Train services running through this station may still be cancelled or delayed. Disruption is expected until 12:00.

Customer Advice

Please allow extra time for your journey this morning

How is this currently affecting the train service?

Services are on the move at Gatwick Airport now.

As some trains were held while the alarm activation was investigated, there will be some short notice alterations to trains to recover services.

Can you tell me more about the incident?

We were advised that the 09:14 Gatwick Express service from London Victoria to Brighton, had a passenger alarm activated outside of Gatwick Airport. This blocked some of the lines towards Brighton and Horsham, and created a queue of services behind it, while the alarm was investigated.

 

Services are again on the move.
