RAIL PASSENGERS SEE CANCELLATIONS AND DELAYS AFTER HEAVY RAIN Flooding also hit London as rainfall of up to 4cm was recorded.
Rail passengers are faced cancellations and significant delays this morning after heavy rain overnight. Flooding also hit London as rainfall of up to 4cm was recorded.
The wet and windy weather is not easing off just yet as the remnants of Hurricane Nigel are set to arrive in the UK this weekend. London Fire Brigade said it received “numerous calls” last night with roads and properties affected by flooding.
All lines between London Kings Cross/Moorgate and Stevenage in Hertfordshire are closed following “a number of incidents”, National Rail said.
“Trains may be cancelled, delayed by up to 90 minutes or revised,” the statement said. And “Major disruption is expected until 9am.”
Damage to overhead electric wires resulted in the closure of all rail lines via Stevenage. Customers were warned not to travel on routes that usually run through the station.
Disruption has also been reported through Tulse Hill in Lambeth and Cheltenham Spa, as well as between Lewes and Wivelsfield in East Sussex and West Ealing and Greenford in west London.
