Train hits tree on railway line
9:39pm Wednesday 18th December 2013 in News
A TRAIN has hit a fallen tree in the New Forest.
The incident happened at around 9pm this evening near Hinton Admiral.
Passengers faced delays after a tree fell on the line in the area earlier in the evening.
The tree was cleared, but the following train struck a tree in the same area.
Commuters face delays of more than an hour as staff clear the scene.
A South West Trains spokesperson later said no-one is believed to have been injured and staff were in the process of removing the tree from underneath the train.
Also, the A35 at Wootton was partially blocked both ways due to a fallen tree near the B3058 Holmsley Road.
