TENS of thousands of commuters have been stranded tonight (Wednesday) on the London Underground by a massive power cut.
The electricity failure has brought the Central Line to a standstill in East London, with no trains running east of Liverpool Street.
Passengers have been queuing outside Bethnal Green station and at other stations along the line unable to get home.
But at 6pm, at the height of the evening rush-hour, London Underground HQ was unable say when the service would resume.

All a spokeswoman could say when contacted tonight by the East London Advertiser was that the Central was down in “in the Liverpool Street area” and promised to look into it when the switchboard shut down.
