Farnham to Alton rail line reopens after landslip

A railway branch line between Farnham, in Surrey, and Alton, in Hampshire, has reopened after work to rebuild a collapsed embankment.

Engineers carried out temporary repairs following a landslide at Wrecclesham, Surrey, caused by heavy rain three weeks ago.

BBC South Today reporter Roger Finn was on one of the first trains to travel on the re-laid track and spoke to South West Trains driver Andy Robbins.
