Man found walking on railway line in Deal

By Charlie Harman

A man caused rail delays earlier today by walking along a railway line.

Commuters faced travel issues between Deal and Walmer when Network Rail staff spotted the individual whilst carrying out work at 12.40pm.

A Network Rail spokesman said: "Trains were stopped and the power to the conductor rail was turned off in the Deal area.

"British Transport Police were called and were able to escort the man from our railway at around 1.30pm.

"One train was delayed as a result and ran fast from Dover Priory to Ashford International to allow it to make up time."

The line has since recovered its schedule.
