Travellers on the Elizabeth line between Paddington and Heathrow Airport were experiencing severe delays on Thursday morning.

Transport for London (TfL) reported the issues were due to ”overhead wire problems in the Acton area”.

TfL said tickets were being accepted on London Buses and other London Underground services.

Passengers between Hayes and Harlington and Reading face minor delays.

There was a good service on the rest of the line.

Heathrow additional checks

Heathrow passengers are experiencing additional checks as the manhunt continues for escaped prisoner Daniel Khalife.

The terror suspect fled HMP Wandsworth on Wednesday morning while facing trial for charges of planting fake bombs and collecting information while he was a soldier in the British Army. It’s understood he escaped by strapping himself to the bottom of a food delivery van.

On Wednesday evening, Heathrow posted on X: “Heathrow is operating as normal. However, due to additional security checks being carried out, waiting times for departing passengers may be longer than usual.

“Passengers are advised to arrive no earlier than usually recommended and to check the status of their flight before travelling to the airport.”

Jubilee line delays

The Jubilee line was facing minor delays across the service due to a “shortage of trains”.

Northern line delays

The Northern line had severe delays between Morden and Kennington due to an earlier faulty train at South Wimbledon.
