Rail commuters faced another morning of travel misery after a points failure at London Waterloo.

Passengers experienced delays as they journeyed into the capital on Thursday following the signalling issue at platform one of the station.

Londoners were warned to expect delays of up to 10 minutes with normal service expected to resume by 10am.

A spokesman for Network Rail said: “A points failure affecting platform one at London Waterloo is causing disruption to trains to and from this station.

“Train services may be cancelled, delayed by up to 10 minutes or revised.”

Commuters took to social media to complain about another day of disruption at Waterloo.

Signalling problems at the station have caused problems for commuters since it was fully reopened following major upgrade works throughout August.

South Western Railway managing director Andy Mellors previously admitted the transition over taking over the franchise from South West Trains had been “challenging”.

In August, Network Rail completed an £800 million redevelopment project at Waterloo, the UK’s busiest station, to lengthen platforms for longer trains.

Engineers fixed the points failure but passengers were warned delays would continue into rush hour.

Replacement bus services have been made available at stations across the south west.
