The Central line has been disrupted all day

There are delays on the Central line and on London Overground services this evening, following severe disruption this morning.

There are severe delays from Leytonstone to Epping/Woodford via Newbury Park and White City to Ealing Broadway/West Ruislip following emergency engineering work at Liverpool Street. There are also minor delays on the rest of the line.

Meanwhile, there are severe delays between Sydenham and West Croydon on the London Overground, although the rail operator has warned there may still be delays to some services due to earlier dosruption.

Large parts of the Overground network were suspended this morning, which Transport for London said was due to "extra safety inspections", after debris was discovered on the tracks last night.
