Commuters at South Woodford hit out at Transport for London (TfL) this morning, after “major delays” and crowds made it “impossible to board” trains.
A pregnant woman could not reach the platform, people claimed they waited more than 20 minutes for a tube and said there were no announcements.
Passengers told the Recorder it then took ten minutes to go one stop, despite the Central Line’s status being “good” all morning.
The Tube line tweeted: “A faulty train caused some slight hold ups.”
In August TfL cut rush hour services in the Hainault Loop from five to three, which forced some commuters to change at Woodford increasing crowding.
At the time Ilford North MP Wes Streeting branded this “unacceptable”.
TfL has been contacted for comment.
