Rail services in the capital are currently subject to severe disruption after a person was hit by a train.

All west London line services have been suspended due to the collision at Bletchley. There are no services between Clapham Junction and Milton Keynes. Trains were previously unable to run in or out of Euston station but services have now resumed - however, National Rail has warned trains may be delayed by up to 90 minutes, cancelled or revised.

Southern rail, London Midland and Virgin Trains have all been affected. The disruption is set to last until the end of the day.

Routes affected include:

  • London Midland between Crewe/Birmingham New Street/Northampton and London Euston
