Significant landslip' between Redhill and Tonbridge disrupts rail service

A railway line that suffered "significant damage" after a landslip during heavy rainfall is to remain closed "for the foreseeable future".

The track between Tonbridge, in Kent, and Redhill, in Surrey, has been closed in both directions since 22 December after the River Eden burst its banks.

Fiona Taylor, of Network Rail, said there had been "a significant earthworks failure" near Godstone.

Engineers said it could not be fixed until the ground stopped moving.

Yes I saw this on the local news last night, looks like quite a bit of the formation has been washed away.
