Commuters are facing severe delays on the Jubilee line this morning following a signal failure.

The whole line, which runs from Stratford to Stanmore, is experiencing disruption as a result of the failure at Westminster.

Tickets are being accepted on the DLR, buses and Southeastern train services.

The DLR, meanwhile, is suffering minor delays between Beckton and Tower Gateway and Bank due to a faulty train at Poplar.

The Metropolitan line has no service between Aldgate and Wembley Park, with severe delays on the rest of the line, due to a faulty train at Finchley Road.
