Rail and Tube travellers have suffered rush-hour delays on another scorchingly hot morning. There were hold-ups on three London Underground lines, while the imposition of a speed restriction affected Greater Anglia main line trains running into the capital.

On the Tube, emergency engineering work at Finsbury Park in north London meant the Victoria line was part suspended for a time, with delays continuing into the heart of the rush-hour.

Signal problems also led to delays on the District line and on the Northern line.
