Thameslink say all of their lines are blocked and they do not yet have a timeframe for re-opening them. East Midlands services were also suspended but are gradually re-opening.

Tickets are being accepted on buses and with alternative train companies. National Rail Enquiries say long delays are expected for the rest of the evening.
