Southern Rail: Wrong Kind of Bank Holiday Weather Triggers Chaos at Gatwick.

'It is a May bank holiday. People want to go to London, people want to go to Brighton. It’s not rocket science,' said passenger Laura Paterson.

Southern Rail is under attack again for failing to cope with long-planned Network Rail engineering work which closed the London-Brighton main line just south of Gatwick. 

Thousands of passengers heading from the capital to the south coast to enjoy the sunny weather faced waits of up to two hours for replacement buses.

As crowds built up at Britain’s second-busiest airport, Southern Rail, which runs trains on the main line from London Victoria to Brighton, told passengers: “It is strongly advised to not travel towards Brighton today.”
