SALISBURY passengers are facing disruption as trains to London Waterloo are cancelled and delayed.

South Western Railway said it is unable to run any services between Woking and London Waterloo, due to a train hitting an object on the track.

A spokesperson for National Rail said: "At around 5.50am this morning, a South Western Railway train travelling towards London Waterloo struck an object in the Walton-on-Thames area.

“No-one was injured and all passengers were safely escorted from the train; however, the lines through the area are currently blocked while we investigate."

The company says they expect it is 'likely to take us some time to get the railway reopened' as early investigations show the front wheels of the train are derailed.

The disruption is currently expected to last until the end of the day, with passengers being advised to 'not attempt to travel'.
