Train passengers stranded overnight due to major disruption out of London
The Metro says Last night saw more travel misery for many on one of the busiest ever days for transport in the capital.
Things would already have been busy, with up to a million people packed into just the area of Buckingham Palace and the surrounding royal parks.
But problems with overhead power cables on the route west out of London meant that services to and from Paddington were disrupted yesterday – and it’s still going on.
Many people were stranded in Reading well into last night, finding their trains further west cancelled or delayed when they finally got there.
