The Woolwich Ferry was suspended this morning (May 21) after a driver ignored boarding instructions.

The service had to be halted while the person was detained and questioned by police.

A two-boat service resumed at around 11am following the incident.

A Transport for London spokeswoman said: “I understand there was an incident involving a driver who was boarding the ferry and ignored instructions from staff directing people on to the ferry.

“The police were called and he was detained for questioning.”
