RAIL passengers are facing delays between Bournemouth and Southampton Central today.  

Earlier today, a fallen tree was blocking the railway line between New Milton and Sway.

As a result, all lines were blocked with South Western Railway and CrossCountry services affected.

South Western Railway has said the line heading towards Southampton has now reopened.

However, train services running through these stations may be delayed or revised.

Disruption is expected until 1pm today.

A spokesperson said: "We were informed of a large tree blocking the railway in the Sway area. Specialist teams were required on site but have now safely removed the tree although due to the amount of time that the line was blocked, there are on-going delays through this area."
