Southeastern services return to normal in south-east London and north Kent

PUBLISHED: 13:43 23 July 2013 | UPDATED: 13:43 23 July 2013

All Southeastern train services have returned to normal after severe delays caused by overnight storms.

During the rush hour there were signalling problems in the Orpington area and flooding around Gillingham also led to some trains running through north Kent to London to be cancelled this morning.

Southeastern’s website said this morning: “A few storms are forecast today. Local flash floods and lightning strikes can affect Network Rail signals and rail equipment - but we’ll do our best to keep you moving and delays to a minimum.”
