London Bridge chaos: Passengers 'stopped from accessing platforms' – Incident unfolding

Pictures shared on social media showed queues of people crowding the pavement outside London Bridge station. One Twitter user, Callum S, tweeted: “

Pictures shared on social media showed queues of people crowding the pavement outside London Bridge station. 

One Twitter user, Callum S, tweeted: “Something going on at London Bridge underground station, they’re not granting access to the platforms.”

The reason for the delay has not yet been confirmed, however it is likely to be linked to wider delays on the Jubilee Line which caused havoc for commuters this morning after a train broke down in Canary Wharf. 

Crowds of people trying to get to work were seen lining the tube station early this morning as the Jubilee Line was suspended between North Greenwich and London Bridge.

The breakdown left hundreds of commuters stranded at stations across the network with delays reported along the Jubilee Line. 

Transport for London (TfL) has not yet been confirmed when the train will be fixed and the line reopened. Travellers are being told to take local bus services instead.

Eastbound trains were reportedly cancelled further than London Bridge as many disgruntled commuters took to Twitter to complain about the travel chaos.

One frustrated twitter user said: “@TfL Rush hour at Canary Wharf Station & only one barrier is into the station and the rest are going out. Creating a bottle neck and queue. Then forcing everyone to use the second set of escalators as the first set are only going up & none are going down. What are you playing at?”

Another called Tony said: “Public service announcement… avoid the jubilee line this morning.”

One user complained: “Second day back in the office and Jubilee line is suspended.”
