'Limited service' at Waterloo station after train partially derails

South West Trains are now advising commuters to avoid travelling to and from London Waterloo and Vauxhall tomorrow, 16 August. Some services will start or end before London Waterloo.

SWT issued a statement saying: "An earlier points failure and an unrelated low speed, partial derailment has caused extensive disruption to services' this morning".

Trains are unable to use platforms 1 to 13 at London Waterloo, while platforms 1 to 10 were already out of use because of the ongoing improvement works.

"An investigation to establish the cause of the incident is under way".

Images showed the front carriage of a train leaning against a freight auto, having apparently crashed into it.

In the Waterloo incident a passenger service heading to Guildford collided with a Network Rail engineering wagon at 5.40am.

"Upgrade work to extend platforms at Waterloo continues".

One passenger, named Bill, told HuffPost UK that the derailed train "appeared to have gone into a train used for the Waterloo works".

"South West Trains have significantly reduced the number of trains running to and from London Waterloo to ensure that delayed trains do not approach London Waterloo at the same time".

It comes after a freight train partially derailed close to Ely, near Cambridge on Monday afternoon.

Services between East Hampshire and the capital and Portsmouth have been disrupted all day following the derailment of a train at Waterloo before this morning's rush hour.
