DISRUPTION: Fire blocks railway line near Maidstone

Monday 4th October 2021

A FIRE is causing disruption to the Maidstone line this afternoon.

A Southeastern spokesman said: "Due to a fire coming from electrical cables near Paddock Wood trains between there and Maidstone West/Strood are being disrupted.

"As the saying goes - 'there's no smoke without fire'. So until the electrical engineers can attend and carry out repair work, trains between Tonbridge/ PaddockWood and Maidstone West cannot run.

"You can use Arriva buses route 6, between Paddock Wood and Maidstone at no extra cost."
