Rail disruption across London as fare increase revealed | London

London commuters were hit with three separate disruptions to travel networks as it was announced rail season tickets would rise by 3.6%.

Travellers were told to avoid Waterloo station all day because of a points failure and a passenger train derailing after hitting a Network Rail engineering wagon at around 5:40 am.

South West Trains said all services would be disrupted all day at Britain’s busiest railway station, which is currently undergoing huge improvement works.

Shortly after, a train at King’s Cross Station hit buffers before a fume-filled Holborn underground station was briefly evacuated.

Overall, there were reports of minor injuries to five people in the King’s Cross and Waterloo incidents.
