Trains between Dartford and Greenwich are currently being blocked by trespassers who have climbed on to the railway, causing delays.

Southeastern and Railway Thameslink Railway both tweeted that due to trespassers on the track, no trains are currently running through Dartford, Woolwich Arsenal and Plumstead stations.

The power was switched off, and emergency services attended the "trespass incident" to remove the obstruction.

The train operators have warned of residual delays on the Woolwich Line due to the disruption.

Ticket acceptance is in place on DLR services between Woolwich Arsenal and Central London, and Southeastern services between Dartford, Lewisham and London Bridge.

The train lines are already running a reduced service during the coronavirus outbreak, ensuring key workers can travel but also responding to the Government's recent lockdown.

The Rail Delivery Group today marked Trespass Awareness Week by reminding people, especially with children not in school, of the importance of being aware of the dangers of trespass on the tracks and rail yards.

Trespassing on the railway is illegal and can result in a court date and a £1,000 fine, according to Network Rail.

Update: As of 5pm, all services are running with no further delays.
