A 'smoking train' is causing disruption between Woolwich Arsenal and Greenwich.

Trains are likely to be cancelled at short noticed or delayed up to 30 minutes.

The disruption is meant to last until at least 12pm.

The congestion was caused after a train came to a stand at Abbey Wood, the brakes were stuck on which produced some smoke.

There was also a person taken ill on a train at Charlton, which meant trains leaving the station were subject to huge delays.

Please check before travelling and make alternate plans if possible.
