Lewisham trains delayed by sunlight

And just because it's always fun to laugh at Southeastern trains, here is a Guardian report that the service through Lewisham was suspended due to the wrong kind of sunlight. The train operator was caught on the hop by a celestial phenomenon which has occurred at the same time every year for millions of years.

Rail passengers have expressed their anger after being told trains were delayed due to “strong sunlight”.

Services at Lewisham, south-east London, were disrupted on Monday because of the angle of the sun, the train operator Southeastern said.

The rail firm tweeted: “We had severe congestion through Lewisham due to dispatching issues as a result of strong sunlight.”
