An electrical fire next to the tracks at Brighton Station last night which lit up the skies over the city closed the line to Lewes for four hours.
Bright flashes from the fire, which was caught on camera by someone living above the tracks and posted on Twitter shortly after 10.30pm, could be seen far and wide.

Southern Railway informed travellers via Twitter at 11.38pm: “Due to electrical supply issues there are no services between Brighton and Lewes. Brighton & Hove Buses services are conveying passengers.”
The line was reopened shortly after 3am.
