For those who use Southern there’s currently an “Incident” between Purley and East Croydon with all lines closed.

Will obviously affect Brighton fans and any Bees coming from that direction

Confirmed as a fatality.
I move train drivers from depots to station s and I get all the information on fatalities.
They are all recorded, but never published for obvious reasons. Some drivers share their experiences others don't.
We have here in Horsham a suicide spot where people literally have laid on the track and waited.
Horrible.

Got on a slightly delayed train at EC. Things are moving again but might be worth allowing a little time if you’re coming via that route

Too late for the journey in but anyone planning in using the Central Line this weekend - don't. Minor delays can = 20 mins between trains, so had to find alternative route in and missed a pre-match meet up. Oh well, the match will make up for it!

Kingston gridlocked as the A3 was closed. Not much better through Richmond. Taken me an hour and twenty mins to get to Richmond.

Coach up - Fault which left us on the roadside for ages, then traffic. All meant we missed the museum visit. Now I realised I've left our tickets. All leads me to think we'll win 6-0 and Junior Downbeat and I won't get it.

I'm sure you can get reprints if you get to the ticket office.

Not very good on the Great West Road, from Gillette Corner, coming in to the game.

Left home at 11.30 and parked up in the Watermans car park at 14.15.
Thats the worst I have ever seen it since I started driving up in 1986.

So I plan my train journey using national rail app. After the game it says first train Kew to Clapham 5.46 get on platform board says train at 5.29 sat down and all of a sudden board changes and there's a train 5.13 direct to Clapham. So we're getting ghost trains now

Can I just say that in my opinion the organisation around KB station has improved immensely. There is a bit of queue to get into the underpass after the game but once in you are through and I was straight over to the Westbound platform to catch the first stopping train to Virginia Water - I think it was the same one that I would have caught from Brentford station had we had been at GP. The extra trains make a big difference so long may it continue. Still not impressed with the fare increase though.

The biggest problem I had Saturday was the traffic around Virginia Water because of the PGA golf at Ascot.
