Trains services through Orpington have been severely disrupted after heavy rain flooded railway lines passing through the station.

After yesterday's downpour, the water in some areas on the track was several inches deep, causing damage to signalling equipment in the area.

Southeastern services running through this station may be cancelled, delayed by up to 20 minutes or revised.

Response staff are currently carrying out repairs, but the work is expected to continue throughout the evening peak until at least 8pm.

Some trains that normally travel to and from London via Orpington may be diverted away from the area. Other trains are being delayed and revised.

The station's underpass was closed yesterday evening as a result of the flooding.
