Severe delays at Redbridge Tube stations after fire alert

Tube stations across the borough are suffering severe delays after a fire alert at Leyton.

There is no service between Woodford and Liverpool Street and Newbury Park and Liverpool Street on the Central line.

As well as affecting Stratford – where the Olympic Park is – the delays also cover Gants Hill, Redbridge, Wanstead, South Woodford and Snaresbrook stations.

Transport for London has said London Underground tickets will be accepted on Greater Anglia and bus services.

But commuters have taken to social networking site Twitter saying buses are “so full” they are not stopping at Gants Hill station.
