PASSENGERS in Basingstoke are facing disruption with trains cancelled and delayed due to 'multiple fallen trees'.

All lines between Surbiton and Basingstoke are affected due to a number of trees blocking the railway, with disruption expected until the end of the day.

A spokesperson for South Western Railway said: "Our specialist teams are working to clear the trees from the railway so trains can resume passing through the affected areas.

"We are very sorry for any delay that this may cause to your journey."

To minimise disruption, passengers can use their tickets on a range of train and bus services, including Great Western Railway between Basingstoke and Reading (in both directions).

For additional information or guidance on onward travel, commuters are encouraged to reach out to railway staff or use the station help points.
