Landslip at Wadhurst
The railway between Tunbridge Wells and Robertsbridge has reopened with normal service running.

Why is the landslip affecting the railway?
A landslip was discovered at around 15:00 on Wednesday 13 March. Inspections were carried out on Thursday morning, which found that there was 60 tonnes of material and 8 trees which was moved by machine. Excessive rainfall in the area and the formation of the clay caused this land slippage.
