Journey planner confusing some passengers
The National Rail website “strongly” advises people to delay their journey until later today and if you do travel you’ll experience delays of at least 90 minutes.
All Thameslink and Southern Rail services are affected. The journey planner seems to be showing some trains as running on time but the advice on the incident page suggests they will be delayed. Sometimes the journey planner is a little slow to update, so here’s what National Rail says:
A person has been hit by a train between Purley / Oxted and East Croydon. As all lines are currently closed, trains across the whole Southern / Thameslink network will be cancelled or delayed.”
