Services are being diverted from London Bridge to Elephant and Castle.

Southern Railway said no trains are running between London Bridge and Norwood Junction via Forest Hill and Norwood Junction and London Bridge via Tulse Hill, extending journey times by up to 90 minutes.

There was further disruption for commuters coming home to Wimbledon and Clapham Junction from Victoria, which was closed due to overcrowding.

Also a man walked infront of the 19.20 FCC Brighton train as it approached Tulse hill causing the power to be switched off & a search was formed to find the man, who was not hit by the train. All power to trains in the area was switched off for around 45 minutes causing further delay on that route
