The Northern Line is still dealing with severe disruptions after a signal failure this morning.

While the issue has been fixed, it took longer than anticipated and Transport for London said it doesn't have a timescale of how long it'll take the line to get back to normal service. So commuters heading home in rush hour, make sure you keep an eye out for updates.

TfL is encouraging passengers to take the first available train and then change where necessary.

Northern Line passengers faced travel chaos first thing after a signal failure disrupted service across the line.

There was no service between Edgware to Morden via Bank and Charing Cross to Morden after a signal failure in the Kennington area and the whole line has since been disrupted by severe delays.

TfL said London Underground tickets will be accepted on South West Trains, Southeastern, Thameslink, Southern and local bus services via any reasonable route.

Commuters have been amused and angered in equal measure...
