RAIL passengers faced disruption this morning between Weymouth and Bournemouth.

Earlier today, the line was blocked in both directions due to a problem with a level crossing in the Poole area.

South Western Railway said the level crossing had lost all its power, but Network Rail staff were now able to operate it to allow trains to pass through the area.

All lines reopened at around 7.30am but trains running between Weymouth and Bournemouth faced delays of up to 30 minutes.

South Western Railway also said some services would be revised.

Disruption continued until around 12pm.
