Severe delays on both the Circle and District Lines are still causing havoc for commuters, after a signal failure at South Kensington station this morning.
Rush hour commuters faced travel disruption earlierwith severe delays along the entire District Line, and no service at all in the clockwise direction on the Circle Line, with severe delays going anti-clockwise - and services are still not back to normal on either line.

So the district line is not fun this morning...— Hattie (@hattiehendry) October 19, 2016
@circleline consistent messaging would be useful. Twitter+apps say route disrupted, boards say trains working. Staff totally silent.— Adam Bradshaw (@adambradshaw86) October 19, 2016
Meanwhile, there are minor delays on the Central Line due to a person ill on a train.
