Passengers face rail delays during rush hour
09:06 09 November 2012
Rail passengers faced delays of up to two hours this morning on routes linking London and Scotland.
A broken-down train at Huntingdon led to severe hold-ups on a number of services in eastern England.
The worst hit were customers with the First Capital Connect (FCC) train company, who had to contend with long delays between London and Peterborough.
FCC services were unable to run between Peterborough and Huntingdon, while trains operated by the East Coast, First Hull Trains and Grand Central companies were also affected, with delays up to 60 minutes.
There were also problems on the Tube this morning, with severe delays on the Bakerloo line following a fire alert at Regent’s Park station.
