On the Overground there is no service between Watford and Euston, Surrey Quays and Clapham Junction, and from Sydenham to West Croydon.

This is due to “heavy snow and ice on the track”.

Travellers on the Jubilee Line are experiencing severe delays due to an earlier signal failure.

And the Northern Line is severely delayed as a result of signal failures caused by ice on the track.
