Commuters are still suffering delays and cancellations on train services between Sittingbourne and Sheerness-on-Sea via Queenborough.

Buses are being used to replace the service which has been disrupted since Saturday morning due to signalling problems in the Swale area.

A spokesman for Southeastern said: "Unfortunately the icy weather has meant we’ve had to run a bus service over the weekend and today between Sittingbourne and Sheerness.

"The ‘conductor’ rail provides trains with electricity but ice forming on top as an insulating layer is making it difficult for the trains to draw power."
