Poor weather thanks to Storm Aileen which battered Britain overnight is causing commuter misery this morning.

A fallen tree near Beckenham Hill is causing delays for users travelling on the Thameslink.

A spokesman for Thameslink said: "Trains will be delayed, cancelled or revised between these stations due to reports of various trees and branches on the line."

The trees are affecting services from Shortlands and Peckham Rye.

There are also problems at Tulse Hill, and between Tonbridge and Redhill again because of fallen trees and branches.

Delays are expected until at least 9am.

Commuters are being advised to check their journey before they travel.
