Train derails after colliding with freight train at Waterloo station

A South West Trains service collided with a wagon near London Waterloo, bringing further travel misery to commuters already affected by major improvement works there. No injuries occurred, however three people were checked over by the London Ambulance Service.

South West Trains said in a statement: "A points problem and an operational incident between Vauxhall and London Waterloo is causing disruption to journeys between these stations".

Passengers are advised not to use Waterloo station in the morning.

SWT has significantly reduced the number of trains running to and from London Waterloo to ensure that delayed trains do not approach London Waterloo at the same time.

Commuters are warned to use alternative routes during their commute on Tuesday evening as stations and trains will be very busy.

'Most trains are experiencing severe delays and are subject to short notice alterations.

A spokesperson for Network Rail has described the incident as "very minor", whilst a spokesperson for Great Northern has confirmed that the Rail Accident Investigation Branch has been informed.

Surface Pro 4 return rates also reached around 16 percent during launch, but dropped below 10 percent after just over a month. And more recently shipped units of its popular devices are reliable and far less likely to suffer defects.

The partially derailed train blocked three platforms, according to Network Rail spokesman Chris Denham.

Today's disruption also comes as SWT embarks on a large-scale series of works to improve the station between 5-28 August.

The barrier train was there to separate the ongoing engineering works at London Waterloo from normal train services. Most to my station cancelled.

Craig Le Grice said: "Waterloo part-closed for derailment, Uber sets surge pricing to 3.8x".

When this happens, trains have to wait for platforms to become free, occupying the track outside Waterloo and making it more hard to get trains moving. "Thankfully they did not need to go to hospital".

"The incident happened as the train was pulling away from its platform at Waterloo".
