South West Trains: 'Delays expected till end of day'

South West Trains have released a statement following the disruption to all South West Train services at London Waterloo this afternoon.

Following a severe incident at Wimbledon this morning, it was necessary to significantly reduce the number of trains through Wimbledon while this incident was ongoing.

Trains and crew that were scheduled to work on trains around our network were not able to get on to these trains due to the disruption. This has had a further impact on our service recovery and spread the problem from our Suburban services to our Windsor services (Waterloo to Staines).

We have reinstated trains on each line of route with the exception of London Waterloo to Salisbury trains which will continue to start from Basingstoke in both directions until 1720.The 1720 London Waterloo - Exeter St Davids departure will be the first service to run its booked route.

Whilst we work to introduce services back into normal operation, customers may see further last minute alterations. Please check before you travel. Disruption to all services on the South West Trains network can be expected until the end of service today.

Alternative travel options:Passengers may use First Capital Connect, First Great Western, Southern, London Buses, London Underground and London Trams services on all reasonable routes.
