VISITORS from across the country have flocked to the Sussex coast to soak up the sun as temperatures continue to rise.

Train operator Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR), which runs the Southern, Thameslink and Gatwick Express services, said it expects people to travel from far and wide to enjoy Brighton in the sunshine.

A spokesman for the railway company said: “The hot weather will draw thousands to the seafront this weekend to enjoy everything that the UK’s large public loves about Brighton and we’re proud to play a vital role in making that happen .

“Our services will inevitably be busier than normal and we are advising passengers to travel with extra caution in this heat.

“It’s a good idea to always have water with you and not get on a train if you’re not feeling well.

“If you’re on a train, try to avoid phoning between stations so we can help you as soon as possible.”

The Argos:

Temperatures are expected to rise further this week and Brighton faces the prospect of the hottest day on record on Tuesday.

Railway companies, including GTR, have urged people not to travel tomorrow and Tuesday unless absolutely necessary as there will be significant disruption and delays to services.

There will be limited services on the Thameslink routes and speed restrictions will apply on both days due to the extreme temperatures.

GTR Chief Operating Officer Angie Doll said: “As the Met Office issues extreme heat warnings, speed restrictions are being introduced across our network to ensure the safety of trains and passengers.

“That means we will have a lot fewer services for people to reach and there is also a very real risk of real disruption. Even if you can travel in the morning, you may need to consider alternative ways to get home.”
