Disruption to train services to and from London Euston for emergency works

There was major disruption at London Euston due to emergency works last night.

Train services to and from Euston were severely disrupted last night as Network Rail engineers needed to repair overhead power lines in the Wembley area, north of London.

There were no services leaving Euston after 2100 hours last night as Network Rail needed access to the track to make further repairs through the night.

Closing the line overnight was also due to have an impact on Sunday morning services. Passengers are advised to avoid travel before 10am and to check for the latest information at www.nationalrail.co.uk.

A spokesman for London Northwestern Railway said “There is significant damage to overhead electric wires. This severely restricts the train services we can run later today and will affect Sunday morning travel too.

“We have arranged rail  replacement transport where possible and ticket acceptance with other train operators. We will do all we can to keep people moving but we have limited capacity and there will be disruption.

“We encourage anyone delayed by 15 minutes or more to claim compensation. Details can be found on our website at https://www.londonnorthwesternrailway.co.uk/
