Tough Sussex Commute After Extreme Heat

26 July 2019, 11:03


It was a tough commute for passengers trying to get between Sussex, Surrey and London this morning.

The extreme weather left issues on Thameslink between Brighton and Bedford.

The overhead lines became so hot yesterday they sagged and got damaged.

At Gatwick Airport thunderstorms across Europe left some flights grounded last night.

There have been more cancellations and delays this morning.

Some passengers have also reported having issues collecting their baggage.

The airport tweeted: "If you're travelling with us today do check your airline, as bad weather may cause some delays."
