Commuters have been warned that trains between London Bridge and Greenwich are being delayed this evening.

This is because a passenger was taken ill on a train in Deptford causing lines to be blocked.

A National Rail statement read: "Trains between London Bridge and Greenwich may be diverted via Blackheath.

"The route via Greenwich towards Slade Green and Dartford is currently blocked, and trains will be diverted via Blackheath.

"Trains towards London are not currently affected and are able to run normally."

Southeastern has told commuters that disruption is expected to last until at least 6.45pm.
