In an update on X, on Thursday morning Southern Rail said: “All lines between Shepherd's Bush and Watford Junction are closed and no trains can run in this area. 

“Trains scheduled for Watford Junction will terminate at Shepherd's Bush and trains from Watford Junction towards East Croydon, will start from Shepherd's Bush.

“This disruption will affect your journey if you are travelling from East Croydon to Watford Junction this morning.

“As the line is closed, you will need an alternative route. You should leave an extra 40 minutes to complete your journey this morning.”

A signalling fault at London Waterloo is causing disruption, with National Rail warning that services running to and from Waterloo may be cancelled or revised. Disruption is expected until the end of the day.

On the London Underground, Central line customers are continuing to experience minor delays due to a shortage of trains.

TfL has apologised for the continued disruption on the Central line caused by an "abnormally high number of motor failures" across the fleet. It said engineers are working to improve the situation as quickly as possible.

More buses have been provided at some east London stations. An emergency Central line timetable is being developed to make better use of the available trains and remove uneven gaps in service. TfL said it hopes to introduce this in the coming weeks.
