Gravel on the track near Glynde train station near Ringmer has become loose from the downpour.

Southern Rail has closed the line while Network Rail engineers survey the area and ensure it is safe.

A Southern spokesman said: “It has been reported that some ballast alongside the tracks near Glynde has been removed by heavy rain and some lines have been closed while Network Rail engineers conduct a safety inspection.
