One man - Elvy Manum'ebe arrived at 6.55 this morning and was still hanging around, going nowhere at 8am.
Fellow commuter Daniel Edmundson said: "Work has been pretty good about all the disruption. They know that people will struggle to get in, but I wouldn't have come here unless I'd seen the notice about the Tonbridge service.
"Last Monday London Bridge was closed because of over-running engineering work, so we've been hit again. You can just about cope with the struggling service, but not when there's slightly bad weather."

And John Marven added: "Southeastern knows there is a storm coming and it just seems there is a complete lack of planning or co-ordination. It could have arranged replacement bus services, or linked in with Arriva, but instead everyone is just told to stay at home.
"I probably won't get to work in London until around 3pm today. I don't see how they can say it runs a good service. I don't think the storm has been that bad."
