Train services to and from Dover Priory are returning to normal this afternoon after being disrupted following heavy falls of snow across the area this morning.

One train heading for Dover wa reported to be stuck at Bekesbourne and another which left Dover was delayed at Faversham.

Other services were cancelled and replacement buses were brought in to cover some routes.

Some trains had fewer carriages than usual.

A spokesman for SouthEastern said valid tickets were being accepted on High Speed services from any reasonable route. Replacment buses were operating from Ashford International, Maidstone East, Ramsgate, Dover Priory and Faversham.

National Express said their coaches were running but might also be subject to delays.

Motoring organisations are advising drivers to allow extra time for their journeys and to take care on the slippery roads.
