UPDATED 17:49*TRAIN services on the Isle of Wight were suspended after a land slip near Sandown this morning (Sunday).
A police spokesman said officers were called to the scene at 9.04am after reports that gardens in Grayswood Close, which backs on to the railway line, had slipped.
A South West Train spokesman said that the landslip, which occurred between Sandown and Shanklin stations, was assessed and was found not to prevent Island Line trains from running.
However a team was cutting back some trees which were hanging on to the line.
The spokesman said that normal service was expected to resume around mid-afternoon.
Replacement bus services were put on for passengers travelling between Ryde St Johns Road and Shanklin.
*A South West Trains spokesman said the Island Line service reopened at 4.30pm.
