There are delays on the Circle Line this afternoon.

Transport for London said the disruption was a result of a "temporary absence of train operators".

Severe delays on the Piccadilly Line are still ongoing, with a large portion of its fleet of trains out for repairs.

Disruption on the line is now expected to continue until after Christmas, as Tube bosses struggle to get repaired trains back into operation quickly enough.

However, Night Tube services on the Piccadilly Line are still set to launch on Friday 16 December, despite calls by the RMT union to close the line entirely until all the trains are fixed.
