Never mind the Tube strike, a broken down freight train near Lewisham meant all Southeastern trains from Victoria to Dartford via Bexleyheath were cancelled this afternoon.

All services through the station were disrupted and, although trains are now able to call at Lewisham, there will still be delays of up to 20 minutes until 5.45pm.

Southeastern wereadvising people travelling from London to Dartford to travel from Charing Cross or Cannon Street instead.

One traveller tweeted: "So in addition to the strike on the underground the absolutely inept @Se_Railway have totally screwed up trains from #Lewisham. #Clowns."
