Storm: Rail disruption in east London spreads to Underground

Six lines have been affected on the London Underground by the storms due to fallen trees and other debris on the tracks.

Both the Central and Jubilee to east London are affected, as well as the Metropolitan to Aldgate and the Northern and Piccadilly routes.

Commuters heading into east London from Essex have also been affected by Greater Anglia trains being cancelled into Liverpool Street via Stratford and Bethnal Green and c2c trains into Fenchurch Street through Barking, West Ham and Limehouse until 9am.

Commuters are being advised not to attempt to travel before 9am, when trains start running again with a reduced service, weather permitting, but with speed restrictions in place. Disruption to journeys is likely throughout the day.

Tickets dated for today can be used tomorrow.

Up-to-the-minute travel advice is being given on Greater Anglia’s website [] and its Twitter feed [@greateranglia] throughout the morning.
