There are severe delays on the Circle Line in both directions after a signal failure at Barbican.

The Circle Line Twitter account tweeted the warning at 7.23am with no indication of when the problem may be fixed.

There are also severe delays on the Hammersmith and City Line as a result.

Other transport problems today include a shortage of trains on the Waterloo and City Line and minor delays on the entire Victoria Line.

It comes following a calamitous rush hour yesterday morning.

Seven Sisters station was evacuated after passengers got crushed due to overcrowding caused by a signal failure on the Victoria Line.

Some passengers were left sitting in tunnels for around an hour as the backlog cleared.

In a separate incident, frustrated passengers revolted with a sit-in on an out of service Hammersmith and City Line train, refusing to get off even when police were called.
