Kent trains disrupted due to ‘emergency incident’ – reports of ‘gunman’ at station


Trains were not stopping at Strood in Kent after emergency services were called to deal with an “incident” there. Initially, all trains between Rochester and Gravesend were cancelled.

The line was later reopened but Southeastern Railway said that trains were not stopping at the station while the situation was resolved.

Colin Purtill tweeted: “We have been kicked off the Faversham train at Ebbsfleet.

“Been here 40 minutes. Announced Gunman at Strood station?”

Southeastern Railway responded: “That’s correct Colin, no trains are stopping at Strood for the time being but there are trains going down the line to Rochester and beyond.”
