It’s been a bad morning for commuters on Southeastern and especially those on the Woolwich line.
A train developed a fault at Abbey Wood causing smoke to appear. Southeastern state: “A train at Abbey Wood had issues with the brakes sticking on”.
A video of passengers removed from the train is seen below. What’s also noticeable is the amount of graffiti on the train.

A passenger also became ill further down the line at Charlton.
A train stuck behind saw an emergency alarm pulled.
Delays are ongoing:
Delays of up to 40 minutes on the #WoolwichLine as a result of an earlier train fault at Abbey Wood, and a passenger taken ill on a train at Charlton. Staff are working to restore services to normal, so some trains will be altered, or cancelled at short notice
