Delayed South West Trains commuters are thanked for their "patience and understanding"

Commuters hit by long delays on South West Trains services into London Waterloo this morning have been re-acting to a tweet thanking them for their patience.

Long delays are expected until lunchtime due to signalling problems between Wimbledon and London Waterloo.

Commuters in the Thames Valley have been warned they will have to deal with disruption for several hours during the morning rush after a signalling problem on a busy railway line into London.

Passengers could be delayed by up to an hour as a result of a problem between Wimbledon and Earlsfield which sparked cancellations on services into and out of Waterloo.

The signalling problem between Wimbledon and Earlsfield has now been resolved and trains are now able to run to and from London Waterloo via Wimbledon.

However, we expect there will be knock-on disruption for several hours. Delays of up to 60 minutes to journeys are expected until services fully return to normal.
