A FIRE near trainlines has caused wide spread disruption to travellers who are already battling the snow.

The blaze near Moorgate this morning (Monday) has led to cancellations and disruptions for commuters travelling into London.

A statement on rail operator First Capital Connect’s website read: “Owing to an earlier line-side fire between Finsbury Park and Moorgate all lines are blocked.

“Train services running through these stations may be cancelled or diverted to London Kings Cross at short notice. All stations between Finsbury Park and Moorgate will not be served.

“An estimate for the resumption of normal services will be provided as soon as the problem has been fully assessed.

“Underground services are conveying passengers via any reasonable route until further notice.”
