Train Derails At London Waterloo, Causing Huge Delays

COMMUTERS are warned against travelling on the Waterloo line today after a train derailed yesterday morning.

Three people had to be checked over by paramedics but did not need to go to hospital, London Ambulance Service confirmed.

"Major disruption" between Waterloo and Vauxhall is now expected until the end of the day - with the train operator urging commuters not to travel into the capital.

Public transport in London was further disrupted when a passenger train crashed into buffers at King's Cross station and Holborn Tube station was evacuated because of a fire alert.

'Most trains are experiencing severe delays and are subject to short notice alterations.

"An investigation to establish the cause of the incident is under way".

Staff in high-vis overalls were gathered around the front of the train, the 5:13am service from Royston, and a cordon was in place.

London Waterloo is now undergoing multi-million-pound expansion work to increase capacity.

Photos from the scene early on Tuesday appear to show a South West train leaning against a freight train.

National Rail's website lists most trains into and out of Waterloo as either cancelled or delayed, with some late by more than an hour and a half.

Craig Le Grice said: "Waterloo part-closed for derailment, Uber sets surge pricing to 3.8x".

The partially derailed train blocked three platforms, according to Network Rail spokesman Chris Denham.

Travellers have also been told avoid travelling because of a points failure.

A spokesperson said no service disruption was disrupted as the crash was "very minor".
