BASINGSTOKE-bound trains are unable to stop at Hook this evening as the weather closes in.

As previously reported in the Gazette, two yellow weather warnings have been issued as a band of heavy rain, accompanied by strong winds with gusts of up to 80mph, sweeps across the region.

A fallen tree has blocked one of the lines between Hook and Basingstoke, meaning trains cannot stop at Hook.

Passengers wishing to travel to Basingstoke from Hook are advised to travel to Winchfield and change, whilst those coming from the London direction should travel to Basingstoke and change.

Disruption is expected to continue until 6pm.

It comes as disruption is being felt further down the line, with some services to Weymouth terminating and starting at Bournemouth.

There is also no Cross Country services past Southampton Central, meaning trains will not serve Bournemouth and Brockenhurst.

UPDATE: Basingstoke-bound trains can now stop at Hook after earlier disruption caused by a fallen tree.
