Hundreds stuck on trains as signal failure blocks entire Woolwich & Bexleyheath lines

A large-scale failure of signalling has stopped the entire Woolwich and Bexleyheath line this morning.

Trains have been stuck across the network with passengers on board.





The scale of disruption is one of the largest in recent history and has been ongoing for an hour.

Tickets are being accepted on buses, DLR and the Tube.

5PM UPDATE: Services have resumed but with delays and cancellations expected throughout the evening peak.

    Blimey – I must’ve just missed it! I came in on the 09:23 from Bexleyheath into Cannon Street; we arrived at 10:00, just about on time by my reckoning…
