SNOW and icy conditions are causing delays for Hampshire commuters trying to get to London by train.

Operators are reporting delays of up to two hours on the main line between Southampton and Waterloo.

Wintry weather has caused major problems on the rails around Woking.

South West Trains passengers are being urged to only travel if necessary, but are being told they can use alternative First Great Western and Southern services as well as London Underground and buses on all “reasonable routes” they find as diversions.

Bosses at the firm have also warned commuters to expect delays throughout the day.

Snow has already fallen in parts of northern Hampshire and Surrey today, and the Met Office is forecasting temperatures will not get above 3C, although wind chill will make it feel significantly colder.
