Emergency services are dealing with an incident at Hackney Central. Consequently, London Overground trains between Highbury & Islington and Stratford are currently suspended.

Trains between London Liverpool Street and Shenfield were being affected due to the power to the trains being turned off. The power has now been restored, however, trains running through the area will still be delayed by up to 30 minutes, cancelled or revised whilst service recovers.

We anticipate that disruption will continue until 20:15.

Advice for London Overground customers:

Customers may use Greater Anglia, Great Western Railway, Great Northern, London Underground, Southern, South Western Railway, TfL Rail and Thameslink on reasonable routes.

You can find a map showing these alternative routes here.
