South Western and District line services severely affected
Severe disruption on public transport is occurring this morning (6 November) after the derailment of a train at Wimbledon station.
The South Western Railway train suffered a low-speed partial derailment at Wimbledon station, near the platforms used by London Underground District Line services. This has blocked both the local train line into Wimbledon and District line services between Wimbledon and Earls Court.
One person was reportedly injured in the incident which occurred at 6.30am and nine fire engines attended.
Disruption is currently expected to continue until the end of the day.

- Southern Railway Metro (Local) Services via any reasonable route
- GTR Thameslink services between Wimbledon and London
