It appears that it is only this station at the V&A Waterfront that was down for about an hour. The station operator tells us that they don't know why it was down and they couldn't report it to the Transport Management Centre (TMC) because there was a power outage in Goodwood and the TMC was down so that we couldn't resolve the matter.
