Great Northern states online: “Emergency services have attended the incident between Harringay and Alexandra Palace and this has allowed lines to reopen.

“Trains between London King’s Cross/Moorgate and Stevenage may still be disrupted whilst services return to normal.

“Trains are expected to be delayed by up to 60 minutes, cancelled or revised.

“We anticipate disruption will continue until 21:00.”

Great Northern issued the following advice for customers: “Your ticket will be accepted on Greater Anglia, TfL Rail, and London Underground on any reasonable route.
