Signal failure causes severe disruption at London Victoria
Commuters told to avoid UK’s second-busiest railway station as most lines are out of service
Commuters have been told to avoid the second-busiest train station in the UK after a major signal failure blocked most lines into and out of London Victoria.
Severe disruption has hit the network after dozens of Gatwick Express, Thameslink and Southern services were cancelled. Southeastern services to the station appeared to be unaffected.
