The biggest concern for rail commuters was a signalling problem between Preston Park and Wivelsfield which caused delays of up to 45 minutes to trains between Brighton and Haywards Heath.

Today is set to remain breezy across Sussex with sunny intervals.

Gusting winds will be a feature right into the Easter weekend, though not as strong as last night.

Light rain is forecast for the next few days with Easter Saturday currently looking drier.
