Hundreds of thousands of rail passengers face major disruption later this month with a nine day closure of half the platforms at London Bridge to allow work to rebuild the station.

Rail managers say the closure will allow new platforms to open in September, a key part of the project. More closure will take pace at Christmas.
ITV Meridian spoke to Dave Ward from Network Rail.
