More news, no ads


Commuters are still facing travel chaos after train services to Cannon Street were cancelled.

The disruption will continue until tomorrow morning while safety checks are made between London Bridge and Cannon Street.

While the London station has been partially re-opened - with platforms 4 to 7 back in use - services are still being delayed or changed "until further notice".

It is thought there is a safety issue with the bridge, but no further details have been released. Police are not thought to be involved.

Some trains are being diverted to London Blackfriars and London Victoria and some trains from Cannon Street are starting at London Bridge.

The London Underground and the Docklands Light Railway are accepting passengers via any reasonable route until further notice, and Southeastern tickets will be accepted for these journeys.

London buses are also accepting Southeastern passengers at no further charge until the problem is sorted.

However, Southeastern said that as Victoria, Charing Cross and Blackfriars provide alternatives to Cannon Street, non-high speed tickets will not be accepted on high speed services.

Passengers can still access London Bridge station via the Charing Cross service, which is unaffected.
