The maintenance work had been completed early this morning, with all lines opened through the area and trains able to leave the Ashford depot, but services were still being delayed.

Trains are no longer being affected by the work however, there are still some delays via Ashford because of earlier incidents at Hither Green and Cannon Street.

Southeastern said if you were made to travel to a different London station than normal because of the problems, you can use your ticket on London Underground services "at no extra cost via reasonable routes to help you complete your journey".

Commuters are advised to check their journey using the National Rail Enquiries real-time journey planner.

You may be entitled to compensation if you experienced a delay but the train company ask you keep your train ticket and make a note of your journey, as both will be required to support any claim.
