@centralline How does this keep happening? This so-called 'service' is a shambles and yet we're expected to pay a small fortune to use it.— Louise (@lousical) December 1, 2016
The Northern Line has been thrown into chaos due to a fire alert at Archway station in north London. There are severe delays on the entire line.

Meanwhile, severe delays are continuing on the Piccadilly Line, also caused by a shortage of trains.
Severe delays while we carry out repairs to our trains. A shuttle train and bus service operates between Acton Town and Rayners Lane.— Piccadilly line (@piccadillyline) December 1, 2016
Around half the Piccadilly Line fleet was taken out of service for repairs last week, and until all the trains are restored to proper working order, a reduced timetable is running.
