Answered on

The Department for Transport does not make estimates of how many passengers are impacted by delays and cancellations.

Govia Thameslink Railway (which runs Southern services) has reported that, on Monday 2 July, 68% of Southern services arrived at their destination within five minutes of the schedule. A major cause of service disruption was a multiple signal failure between Wivelsfield and Hassocks.
