London train services hit by strong winds causing fallen trees on lines

08:05 08 June 2012

Trees falling in strong winds have been causing problems to train services this morning.

On Greater Anglia the service between Liverpool Street and Enfield Town is suspended due to a fallen tree on overhead lines at Hackney Downs.

A fallen tree is also causing delays of up to 30 minutes on South West Trains between Haslemere and London Waterloo.

Obstructions on the line are also causing half-hour holds-ups on London Overground between West Croydon and New Cross Gate and on Southern between Epsom Downs and Victoria.
