There are delays on both the Central and Piccadilly Lines this morning due to a shortage of trains - and on the Northern Line because of a fire alert

Commuters are contending with delays on the Central Line this morning, due to a shortage of trains.

Passengers tweeted their displeasure at the news:

The Northern Line has been thrown into chaos due to a fire alert at Archway station in north London. There are severe delays on the entire line.


Meanwhile, severe delays are continuing on the Piccadilly Line, also caused by a shortage of trains.

Around half the Piccadilly Line fleet was taken out of service for repairs last week, and until all the trains are restored to proper working order, a reduced timetable is running.
