A SWR spokesman added: "Tickets will be accepted at no extra cost on Cross Country trains between Basingstoke and Southampton Central. These trains will divert via Salisbury.

"For further information or onward travel advice please speak to a member of staff or use a station help point.

"We are very sorry for any delay that this may cause to your journey."
