The Central Line is now running again but commuters continue to experience severe delays on the line this evening following a flood in Bow yesterday.

The line between Leytonstone and Bethnal Green started running again at 4.30pm today after being suspended yesterday when two million litres of water flooded the train line near Bow.

Water from a ruptured Thames Water pipe in Wick Line cascaded into the train tunnel covering a distance of 800 meters halting services and forcing people to abandon trains, and stand in long queues for replacement buses.
