Passengers were evacuated from a train in Eastbourne this morning (28 November), after a fire broke out on its roof.
Fire services were called just after 5am. No one was hurt, but all lines were shut, owing to the electrics having to be turned off.
The line between Eastbourne and Hastings is now back open, but delays of up to 45munutes are possible until at least 9.30am.
Update: Platform 3 is expected to remain out of service for the rest of the day.
