London commuters are facing disruption across transport networks this morning, with severe delays on two Tube lines.

There are severe delays on the Hammersmith & City line, due to a faulty track.

There are also delays on the Circle line, caused by an earlier track fault. Service on the line is returning to normal but Transport for London warned passengers to allow extra time.

On the rails, a broken down train at Esher station is causing disruption on routes in and out of London Waterloo.

The train has now moved from Esher, National Rail said, however, it is running at a vastly reduced speed and is causing delays to trains which are following on the same line.

The rail operator warned that South Western services may be subject to delays or short notice alterations, as some trains may have to divert their course to avoid congesting the area. Disruption is expected until 8.45am.

Meanwhile, over-running engineering works at London Cannon Street are causing major disruption to trains at this station, National Rail said. No trains are able to run to and from Cannon Street while the works are completed. This also means that trains can't run via Greenwich, and trains also can't stop at New Cross or St Johns. Services will be diverted to run to and from Charing Cross or Blackfriars where possible.

Train services running to and from Cannon Street station may be cancelled, delayed or revised. Disruption is expected until 12pm.
