A landslide is causing delays to train services running through Dorset.

The landslip happened earlier between Axminster and Honiton which means that trains have to run at a reduced speed in that area.

Services running through Dorset towns including Sherborne and Gillingham will be impacted.

Train services running through these stations may be delayed or revised.

Disruption is expected until the end of the day.

A spokesperson for South Western Railway said: “We were informed earlier of a landslip on the line between Axminster and Honiton. This means that trains have to run at reduced speed on all lines between these stations.

“For further information or onward travel advice please speak to a member of staff or use a station help point.

“We are very sorry for any delay that this may cause to your journey.”
