Trains are still delayed after overhead wire problems caused major disruption yesterday evening.

All lines were completely blocked for the evening rush hour because there was a damaged overhead wire at Hornsey in North London.

Although all Great Northern lines between London King’s Cross and Alexandra Palace have now reopened, services are still being delayed or cancelled and some trains will arrive with less carriages than normal.

It is expected to clear by 10am.

Passengers can use their tickets on the London Underground via any reasonable route and on Greater Anglia services between London Liverpool Street and Cambridge and Hertford East.
